Hot Air Balloons Will Be Soaring At Nebraska’s Annual Old West Balloon Fest

Every summer, hot air balloon pilots and enthusiasts gather in Scotts Bluff County for one of the nation’s favorite ballooning events. The Old West Balloon Fest is an entire week of events that include watching balloons take off and tons of other family-friendly activities.

The sight of colorful hot air balloons against the backdrop of the beautiful Scottsbluff area is truly a can’t-miss experience. Visitors have to pay for an event pass, but the price is very reasonable and allows access to the entire week’s events.
