Northam Elevate Festival 2023
2023 Northam Elevate Festival
The Elevate Festival took place on Saturday 6th May at the Henry Street Oval in Northam, Australia – the country’s number one hot air ballooning destination.
This one-of-a-kind event marked the beginning of the 23rd National Ballooning Championships, where the skies were filled with an array of colourful hot air balloons.
Spectators were treated to a host of interactive experiences including the chance to meet the pilots, family-friendly entertainment, more than twenty food trucks offering mouth-watering bites, the hostess-with-the-absolute-mostess Famous Sharron, as well as live music from Remi Mura and Refractory Road.
It was an unforgettable evening filled with unique hot air balloon experiences.

The stunning hot air balloons were tethered to the ground and inflated.
The balloon burners were periodically ignited, keeping the balloons inflated and creating a breathtaking glow in time to the live music that illuminated the sky and captivated the audience.
