Owl-O-Ween offers unique experiences, not only allowing guests to get up close and personal with 20+ balloon pilots and crew, but trick-or-treating from balloon to balloon.

You can soar high above the park in one of six hot air balloons offering tethered balloon rides. And be sure to check out the stationary glow balloons, too!

In addition to all of the magical balloons, the festival will have five breathtaking stages located across the property featuring live music, aerialists, sword swallowers, fire breathers, acrobats, and more.

Over a dozen bands will play during the 2-days — American Idol Top 4 Finalist Jessica Meuse is scheduled to perform on Saturday evening, while National Touring Artist Jacob Bryant is scheduled to take the stage on Friday evening.

The KSU spirit shines through with multiple owl art installations, located throughout the festival. Also returning this year will be the greatly anticipated Levitation Stage catwalk, featuring a huge costume showdown. Grand-prize winners will take home prize packages.
