Jackson's annual Hot Air Jubilee kicks off today. You'll spot dozens of colorful hot air balloons across the sky over the weekend.

The balloons launched for the first time at 6:30 a.m. this morning, and they'll do that again Friday night at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., as well as Sunday at 6:30 a.m.

There is nothing like it, seeing dozens of huge, colorful balloons dotting Jackson's sky - it's one of the biggest summer events in Jackson.

The jubilee runs today through Sunday and thousands are expected at Ella Sharp Park to check out the balloons and family events.

There is live music, concessions and crafts for the kids. You can even check out the Ella Sharp Museum.

Thanks to Jubilee sponsors, admission is totally free this year.

There is a $5 fee to park inside the park.
