The Roswell Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that they will host the 31st Annual “Rise Over Roswell Balloon Rally,” formerly the “Old Timers Balloon Rally.” This family friendly event has been a great tradition that was started by Bill Glenn and a group of pilots who decided to have a rally featuring old timers, and the Roswell Chamber of Commerce wants to proudly continue this tradition.

They want all of Roswell and the surrounding areas to come out to the Cielo Grande Soccer Complex and enjoy these magnificent balloons, meet the pilots, and help them continue to make this a spectacular event that continues for another 31 years!

The event will start on Friday, May 4 with balloons launching at elementary schools in Roswell, followed by a balloon glow Friday night, and Sunrise Mass Ascensions Saturday and Sunday mornings. Follow the Roswell Chamber of Commerce on Facebook for up-to-date details on this event. For more information or sponsorship opportunities, contact Candace Lewis at 575-623-5695 or via email at
