There's high flying action each summer during the Summer Balloon Classic and AirFest in Midlothian. 

This aviation extravaganza features dozens of brightly colored hot air balloons, and one of the largest displays of aircraft around. Keep your eyes on the sky and you'll see airplanes, helicopters, fighter jets, gliders, skydivers, kites and even remote controled aircraft. Among the most breathtaking events are the mass ascents of hot air balloons, nighttime glow sessions and aerobatic racing challenges. Spectators have the opportunity to take tethered rides. This free event is held at MidWay Regional Airport.
