Freebie: Balloon Rides in Orange County

Balloons rides at Orange County Great Park are Free Thursday-Sunday all year long.

From their website:

Open to the public, the 27.5-acre Balloon Park prototypes the kinds of spaces, programs, and features that will become part of the future Orange County Great Park. Signature events like concerts and dances, workshops, outdoor movies, and more, bring activity to the space year-round—a commitment to the public that the Orange County Great Park remains open during its development.
