Spend The Day At This Hot Air Balloon Festival In New York For A Uniquely Colorful Experience
Calling all Western New Yorkers or anyone willing to take a road trip, this post is for you! This month we’ve been talking about how Rochester’s
120th Lilac Festival is a must-see this year, going on until May 20th. But if you’ve already crossed that scenic event off of your bucket list, then it’s time to head an hour south to the small town of Castile to pay one of our favorite state parks a visit this Memorial Day Weekend.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Known for being one of the best state parks in New York, from May 25th through May 28th this year Letchworth State Park will be the host of the 17th annual Red, White & Blue Balloon Rally.
Put together by Balloons Over Letchworth, this hot-air balloon company is the only one allowed to launch out of the state park - providing a one-of-a-kind experience.
Gather in the Archery Field just north of the Glen Iris Inn and you can see roughly 30 hot air balloons prepare to take off into the state park.
One of the most amazing ballooning events in the Northeast, you can call Balloons Over Letchworth ahead of time to be a passenger of one of the hot air balloons if you want to fully immerse yourself in this festival.
Gathering all-around spots like Middle Falls, visitors come to see the balloons fly right over the waterfalls and go down into the gorge.
Considered to be one of the best hot air balloon rides that you can take in all of America, you'll get a bird's eye view of some of our state's most magnificent natural wonders and waterfalls.
With six scheduled flights launching over the course of Friday evening through Monday morning, you'll have plenty of chances to catch this dreamy rally of balloons flying through Letchworth.
Will you plan on heading out to Wyoming County to see this epic balloon rally this year for Memorial Day Weekend?
All dependent on the weather, this year's Red, White & Blue Balloon Rally will launch at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, 6 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, with a final launch kicking off the holiday at 6 a.m. on Memorial Day.
If you're unable to attend this year's balloon rally or want to enjoy these amazing balloon rides for yourself, then no worries! Balloons Over Letchworth provides balloon rides through Letchworth State Park all throughout the year, even offering Champagne Balloon Flights every day of the week!
