Hudson Valley Hot Air Balloon Festival
Plan your next photo-op as some 75 hot-air balloons paint the sky in a rainbow of colors —or schedule a tethered flight of your own. The nighttime illumination glow offers a different kind of dazzle. Fireworks, helicopter rides, live music, food trucks, and family activities add to the fun.
Be advised that balloon launches are highly sensitive to weather conditions, including wind, and may be canceled at any time. Advance reservations are needed, as are face masks for those who are unvaccinated.
