Canton, Texas

The Tailwind Regional Balloon Fest is back for it's 6th year in a row, and this year things are going to be bigger and better than ever.

We have partnered with the top businesses in the community to bring not only the citizens of Canton, but visitors from all across the state a unique experience.

Located on the West Side of the First Monday grounds, this years festival will be held on May 12th and 13th.

 

5K glow run

9:15 PM on Friday the May 12th the 5k course will run around and through the First Monday Grounds. This is a after dark 5k that will run through "glow stations." Bring your glow stuff, or buy some from us. The run is completely free, but we will have t-shirts for sale.

car show

Show off your pride and joy, or check all the cool cars out. The Van Zandt County Road Rebels will host this years car show. It will be on Saturday the 14th. Registration begins at 2:00 PM.

Battle of the Bands

This isn't just any Battle of the Bands, this is an EPIC Battle of the Bands, with only the top performers making an appearance on our stage. We have some big prizes to lure out the real talent in East Texas. It will be held all day Saturday starting at noon.

FEEL THE HEAT


Balloon glows on Friday and Saturday at 8:30 PM (weather permitting).

Feel the intense heat as the flames shoot into the night sky and light up the balloons during the balloon glow. It is a truly spectacular event and is a site to behold. If the weather is too intense to inflate the balloons, we may have to resort to a candlestick burn also known as a oilfield burn, which is equally impressive. You will not be disappointed to see the flames shoot up to 30 feet in the air and light up the night sky.
