The One Of A Kind Festival You Won’t Find Anywhere But Kentucky

Everyone loves a good festival, but when you combine it with the biggest celebration of the year and add hot air balloons, you have a one of a kind experience that takes place in Louisville each year. As a part of the Kentucky Derby Festival, five separate balloon events will occur the weekend before the big race – this year that’s April 27th-29th – and it’s called the Great BalloonFest. It’s unique, mesmerizing and a Kentucky tradition that adds even more beauty to the Bluegrass State.
