New York State Festival of Balloons

The beauty of an early morning flight is breathtaking as balloons gracefully float over our valley. The thrill of a mass evening launch is a real crowd pleaser. For those passengers taking their first flight, wonderful thoughts and memories will long endure. Though we are one of the largest events of its type, The New York Festival of Balloons, is a great deal more than hot air balloons. Take a look at the SCHEDULE OF EVENTS for this coming Labor Day Weekend and you will agree that there is something for everyone all weekend long at the NYSFOB
