Organizers Reluctantly Cancel ‘Balloons Over Paradise’ for 2016

A combination of reasons has forced organizers of the annual “Balloons Over Paradise” event to reluctantly cancel this year’s hot air balloon festival, which had been schedule to take place April 2 and 3.

“Unfortunately, the water table at the event site is very high due to recent rains and as of now, it is too muddy for spectators,” said Gary Bitner, spokesperson for the Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee, lead organizer of the event. “Nearby construction has also complicated the event planning process for this year.”

2016 would have been the fifth year for what has been an annual event.
