Balloon Fest

Good Samaritan Center & Canton Tourism would like to invite you to the 2021 Mississippi Championship Hot Air Balloon Fest happening July 1st-3rd in Canton, MS.

Every year (except last year of course, thanks COVID…) Good Sam has hosted two events at the fest & we are happy to announce that they’re both actually happening this year – in person!

Good Sam’s Main Events:

Golf Ball Drop: a raffle fundraiser for the Good Samaritan Center… But how does it work?
First, you have to buy a Golf Ball Drop ticket claiming your ball. (all balls will be numbered from 1 to 1,000). Each ticket costs $20.
Then during the Canton Balloon Fest on Saturday, July 3rd (8 p.m.) at the Mississippi Championship Hot Air Balloon Fest in Canton, MS. All the balls will be taken up in the air, and dropped onto the festival field.
The owner of the ball that drops closest to the designated target wins $5,000!!!

**If you purchased a ticket in 2020, you will still be eligible to win at this year’s Golf Ball Drop!

Ballon Chase: A non-competitive hot air balloon chasing great time, brought to you by Canton Parks & Recreation, the Mid-Mississippi Balloon Association and The Good Samaritan Center.
All participants will receive an awesome “Balloon Chase” t-shirt, race medal, a VIP dinner voucher, and the opportunity to run/walk/bike in the company of magnificent hot air balloons!
