The City of Kyle is not letting Kyle Pie in the Sky Hot Air Balloon Festival’s cancellation stop them from coming up with a way to provide a little of its magic to Kyle. And that magic will appear in the form of 2020 City of Kyle Labor Day Celebrations. Check out what they have in store to celebrate America’s largest rest day.
Great news! The hot air balloons will still take flight on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 7 am! This one time is worth waking up with the sunrise. Here’s your chance to step outside and watch for hot air balloons to appear at random intervals. This isn’t a city sanctioned event, but it’s sure to make it a magical Labor Day weekend!
Drive-thru Glow Show
Who says driving through neighborhoods only has to happen during the winter holiday season to see the holiday lights? On Saturday, Sept. 5 at 7:45 pm, everyone is invited to line up at 5001 City Lights Dr. for a memorable evening drive. Drive down Physicians Way to see eight to 10 tethered balloons glow in the nighttime. The city asks everyone to please not park or walk up to the event.
From Sept. 4 to 11, everyone is invited to enter photo contests. This is your chance to share what Labor Day in Kyle means to you in photography. Is it a BBQ with family and friends? Is it decorating your yard? Is it celebrating frontline workers and heroes? Will it be a reflection of Pie in the Sky festivals of the past?
Winners will receive cash prizes. City Council will announce the winners at its Sept. 15 meeting. The next section shares how to enter the photo contest.
