In a positive sign for the 2021 Canowindra International Balloon Challenge, tickets for this year's Cabonne Community Glow on May 1 have officially gone on sale.
Tickets are $10 for adults (18 and above) and $2 for children under 18 plus booking fees and can be purchased from www.canowindrachallenge.org.au
Attendees can also now book their campsites by visiting www.canowindrachallenge.org.au
Due to COVID-19 regulations, all attendees must enter the names of any persons coming to the event, including the names of children.
The event will also feature the Night Markets, complete with food and wine stalls and entertainment before the glow.
The challenge will kick off on Saturday, April 24 ahead of the glow on May 1.
President of the Organising Committee, Andrew Pull, told the Canowindra News in January that the group was committed to bringing the event back to life following its cancellation last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The committee is going to attack it with a real positive attitude," he said.
"In saying that though, we'll keep it in the back of our minds if COVID gets out of hand and shuts us down, we'll be doing as we are directed.
"But at the moment, with the rules and regulations in place, we are allowed to have a few people and we are going to push ahead with it."
Mr Pull said the event will hopefully be similar to previous years but with an emphasis on local entertainment.
"A lot of it will be what we've done in the past, we just need to keep eye on the NSW Government websites," he said.
"The biggest change this year is we are going to really look at local entertainment.
"Whereas in the past we have brought in people from outside, this year we are really going to work on the locals."
