In 2023, the Cosmic Crisp® hot air balloon is taking to the skies at festivals across the United States. Festive, fun and family friendly — these events inspire us to Imagine the Possibilities™.
Our custom shaped Cosmic Crisp® balloon is 85 feet tall (over 8 stories high!) The volume of the hot air balloon is roughly 90,000 individual Cosmic Crisp® apples. The weight of the balloon is 440 lbs and uses more than 14 km of thread and 1,300 yards of fabric. Just like real Cosmic Crisp® apples, the balloon has a gorgeous color which is accentuated with 232 individually hand-created starry lenticels. It’s incredible to see during the day, and purely wondrous when lit up at night!
