Brookfield - A Great Place to Land

Safety and Clothing Tips

  • Dress in layers.
    It's sometimes very cool in the morning, but after the sun comes up it will warm up noticeably.
  • Bring sunscreen to put on after the sun is up.
    You're at risk for sunburn if you are exposed for an extended amount of time.
  • Bring appropriate eye protection.
    Sun and wind could be your enemies on a bright, sunny or windy day.
  • Don't smoke anywhere near the balloons!
    A lit cigarette could possibly ignite a balloon's fuel tank and an ash can melt the balloon envelope.
  • Decide among your group where you could meet in case someone gets separated or lost.
  • Make sure your children have some identification on them.
  • Watch where you're going!
    Don't "drive and watch" at the same time.
    The balloons are a magnificent but distracting sight. Move completely off to the side of the road to watch.
  • Beware of vehicles moving around the field, especially emergency vehicles needing to get through the crowd.
  • For evening events, bring a flashlight.
    Also, take note of where you have parked your car. It's more difficult to find in the dark.
