Gatesway announces return of hot air balloon festival in Broken Arrow


Gatesway Foundation, a non-profit Oklahoma agency providing specialized services to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, has partnered with the City of Broken Arrow to return Gateway's Hot Air Balloon Festival to the community.

With the help of Broken Arrow city officials and staff, planning is currently underway for the festival, celebrating Gateway's 60th anniversary with friends, families and the community.

The event is planned for Oct. 13-14, following the Tulsa State Fair. The City of Broken Arrow is working to provide Events Park at 101" Street and the Creek Tumpike as the site for the festival.

The Hot Air Balloon Festival will include a corporate night on Friday, complete with dinner under the glow of the hot air balloons and musical entertainment. The festival will be open to the public on Saturday.

The Gatesway Team will be working to scout pilots, volunteers, vendors, sponsors and donors to support both the return of the festival and Gateway's mission.

If you or your organization are interested in being involved in the Hot Air Balloon Festival, please reach out to Kristina Watkins, director of business development, for more details.

Gatesway Foundation is a non-profit Oklahoma agency that encourages independence and provides opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities to enable them to live and work in the community.
