Owl-O-Ween is a large, family-friendly hot air balloon festival that takes over the sprawling Kennesaw State University Sports Complex in metro Atlanta-area Kennesaw, GA in late October. Combining elements of Halloween, Octoberfest, musical performances, circus acts, and, yes—hot air balloons, the annual festival features new and elaborate art installations every year, serving as unique photo backdrops for patrons to post on social media.
In addition to our Steampunk Owl that was updated fresh for this year, we created a massive custom Owl Tree aerialist rig for the Enclave Stage. We collaborated with our friends at Liquid Sky to curate a set of cirque performances set to haunting music and lights. We also gave a former Biergarten house a facelift by turning it into a magical fairy cottage, perfect as the stage backdrop for the Kids Stage.
