Meet Skip & Toni

When Toni first met Skip Durham in the summer of 2009, she was intrigued to learn that he was the owner of a hot air balloon. It didn’t take long for Toni to fall in love with ballooning—and with Skip—and the pair soon formed Bluff City Balloons, LLC in 2012.

Skip’s balloon, “Shenanigans” was beloved by many and provided years of memories before it was retired in 2015. This retirement provided the couple with the opportunity to collaborate on the design and manufacturing of a new hot air balloon.

They did just that, debuting “High Jinx” in July 2015, and it’s been soaring over Collierville ever since!

Special Events & Parties

A trip aboard a hot air balloon is the ideal activity for celebrations big and small. Bluff City Balloons offers several packages to fit your specific needs.

Tether Rides

Tethered balloon rides are great for festivals, birthday parties, and more. Here, passengers go aloft at a low altitude while staying tethered to the ground by lines or straps.


What better way to pop the question than from a hot air balloon? Bluff City Balloons’ proposal packages can be designed for intimate moments or family celebrations. Not to mention, every flight ends with a champagne toast and chocolate-dipped strawberries.

Accessible Rides

Bluff City’s balloon basket was specifically designed with an FAA-approved chair which can raise passengers to standing height. This allows those who are wheelchair-bound or unable to stand for an hour-long flight the opportunity to enjoy Collierville’s stunning views.

Bluff City Balloon Jamboree

Gather for a day of memory-making fun at the Bluff City Balloon Jamboree. This Collierville, TN, event is sure to be a hit for folks of all ages.

The little ones will find plenty to stay entertained within the Kidz Zone, including a bounce house and face painting. For the older crowd, carnival rides and midway games are sure to be a hit. Oh, and of course, it wouldn’t be a balloon jamboree without tethered balloon rides.

The party begins at dawn, where early birds can watch the ascension of 30 hot air balloons. At dusk, these balloons will light up the night sky for the mesmerizing evening balloon glow.

Food trucks and other vendors will be present throughout the day, as well.
