Administaff Holiday Balloon

See Houston from 35 stories up in the air when you take a turn on the Administaff Holiday Balloon at Discovery Green. The 60-foot helium-filled balloon will take up to 17 passengers 350 feet in the air for a ten-minute ride. (Organizers promise no ozone will be harmed in the operation of this balloon; it's a silent, noncombustible, green device.) 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays (weather permitting).

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
