Hot Air Balloons Will Be Soaring At Kentucky’s Gaslight Festival

There’s really nothing quite as winsome and whimsical as a hot air balloon. And an entire sky filled with hot air balloons? Now that’s absolutely magical! Mark your calendars, because hot air balloons will be soaring at Kentucky’s Gaslight Festival in Jeffersonville on Sept. 17. What started in 1969 as a small street party has turned into one of the most beloved and attended festivals in the region. Hosted by The Chamber Jeffersontown, Kentucky’s Gaslight Festival draws over 200,000 visitors to Jeffersontown every year, and the balloon glow is the fest’s most extraordinary feature.

This magical event is something you can only experience in The Bluegrass State. This year, Kentucky’s Gaslight Festival is slated for Sept. 12-19, with limited activities during the week, and the balloon glow operating as a drive-thru event and Sept. 17. Admission is $10/carload, and cars are asked to line up at Indiana Wesleyan University, 1500 Alliant Avenue, Louisville, KY, 40299, where they’ll then get to cruise through a whimsical wonderland of hot air balloons.

Kentucky’s Gaslight Festival glow aside, Jeffersontown is a delightful destination any time of the year, home to an adorable B&B and especially charming brewery!
