A: The festival created a 3-day pass only in order to accomodate the wide spread of activites that occur on any given day. As the balloons launch very early in the am (5:45-6:15), you can take advantage of all of the other activites that the festival has to offer (carnival, vendors, car show, Twilight Run, youth soccer tournament, and more).
