The fiesta will feature twice daily mass ascents featuring balloons taking off from a ballooning arena at the centre of the event site. Ballooning is very weather and wind dependent so the decision to fly is left to the last minute when the flying committee announce, whether it is safe for pilots to take to the skies. This jeopardy is a big part of ballooning and adds to the magic when we have perfect conditions to fly. But Balloon Tethering will keep all patrons high up to have a bird's eye view of the Loktak Lake and around most of the day.

The event also features Para-Motoring, an appearance in the area with balloons around throughout the weekend by expert team of pilots over the Loktak Lake.

The event also features two magical nightglows, when the balloons light up to a soundtrack provided by Manipur's Fusion Music.
