Witness Hot Air Balloons Floating Over The North Dakota Badlands During This Annual Event

Medora, North Dakota is a summer destination that’s well-loved by many. As summer comes to a close, so does many of the activities in the town. Seasonal businesses close until next year and the famous Medora Musical ends another summer of fun. You can celebrate the final showing of the musical for 2020 during an annual event: the Medora Hot Air Balloon Festival! There’s nothing quite as stunning as colorful balloons and kites flying over the equally colorful badlands. Here’s all you need to know about this year’s hot air balloon festival in North Dakota:
