More Than 100 Hot Air Balloons Will Soon Fill The Sky In Iowa And You Have To See It

Keep your eye on the skies this July! At the end of the month, Iowas flock to Indianola to attend the National Balloon Classic. This family friendly summer festival is unlike any other in the state, and it’s worth the trek to see more than a hundred hot air balloons light up the skies over the Hawkeye State.
