September means falling autumn leaves, football, changing weather and the Table Mountain Casino ClovisFest and Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly, a Clovis Chamber Event. Join the thousands of visitors in Old Town for free, family fun.
Hot Air Balloons:
The Balloons will inflate and take off from the Clovis Rodeo Grounds starting about 6:15 a.m. Enjoy a hot, fresh cinnamon roll as you get a close up view as the giant orbs fill with hot air and pop upright, ready for lift off. By 7 a.m., they'll rise to float across the Valley sky.
Cross the street to Pollasky Avenue where the real fun begins. Start with a hot breakfast from various Old Town shops and festival food vendors. Then start shopping at the 200 craft and commercial booths. Stick around for entertainment on many of the side streets from wrestling to dancing and even Roller Derby girls.
If great food is on your agenda, stop at the many snack vendors along Pollasky for kettle corn, shaved ice, cotton candy or mini-donuts. Then go to the Bullard Food Court where you'll find the best of barbeque, Mexican food, chicken and even Indian tacos.
Visit the Budweiser Beer Garden to enjoy a fresh brew and hear the sounds of local live bands. Your little ones will love the full size carnival at Bullard and Pollasky that will also feature a pumpkin patch and games.
