After the resounding success of the first edition of Taj Balloon Festival, the beautiful city of Agra is geared up for another lively display of Hot Air Balloons against the backdrop of the iconic Taj Mahal. The Uttar Pradesh Government is conducting Taj Balloon Festival 2016 in association with E-Factor Adventure Tourism Pvt. Ltd - a prominent company in India that operates commercial hot air ballooning flights in the name of SkyWaltz, along with promoting and hosting various Hot Air Balloon related events. This year, the balloon fiesta will take place from the 25th to 30th of November 2016.

The line-up comprises 15 balloons from different countries including India, the USA, UK, Canada, Spain, UAE, Netherland, Turkey, Switzerland, Belgium, Poland, and Malaysia. These include three “special shape” balloons featuring iconic characters Happy Egg, Bob the Lobster & Smurf, an exciting new addition to last year’s festival. The highlights of the festival include night glows & tethered flights at the PAC parade grounds. Night glows are a visual delight wherein the massive balloons stacked up close to each other provide a colorful symphony of sound and light, in sync with accompanying music. The eye grabbing Night Glow is open to the general public, and will be held every evening, 6:30 PM onwards, from 25th to 30th November 2016.  

The balloon flights will happen every morning at Sunrise and the evening nightglows after sunset.
