Hamilton Airport is delighted to announce a new four-year relationship as proud legacy partners of the ionic Balloons Over Waikato festival.
A visually spectacular annual event in the heart of the Mighty Waikato since 1999, Balloons Over Waikato captivates hearts and minds and brings colour to our skies with a five-day festival of vibrant morning ascensions, culminating in the mesmerising ZURU Nightglow.
Hamilton Airport’s commitment to the community aligns perfectly with the spirit of Balloons Over Waikato, which connects families, friends, and visitors to gather and embrace the colourful spectacle of the balloons, unique in New Zealand. Through our legacy sponsorship, we aim to further enhance the event's impact, enabling the organisers to create even more magical experiences and cherished memories for everyone involved.
Mark Morgan, Hamilton Airport chief executive, says, “An internationally renowned event of this nature in our own back yard is incredible, and the fact it’s free, means everyone gets a chance to enjoy the show. Hot air balloon flights align so well with our own aeronautical business, that it was really an obvious decision for us to get involved.”
Hamilton Airport looks forward to sharing the incredible Balloons over Waikato experience that promises unforgettable moments for attendees of all ages. Next year’s event runs from 19-23 March 2024.
