Seminole Casino Balloons Over Paradise Event has been postponed. The fields have been submerged due to the severe and uncharacteristic rains that have hit the area this January and February. There is no rescheduled date for the 2016 event.
This is a two-day Hot Air Balloon Festival held just outside of Naples, Florida.
The event is sponsored by The Seminole Casino in Immokalee Florida and it is well attended and extremely well advertised. This show does well with smaller more affordable items. This event will consider unique items that are not necessarily fine art.
