The Largest Hot Air Balloon Festival In The Midwest Is Right Here In Wisconsin

Most folks don’t connect hot air balloons and winter, but up in Hudson, the Hot Air Affair has been combining the two since 1990. They now have the largest hot air balloon festival in the midwest.

Taking place February 3-5 this year, the festival celebrates the wonder of hot air balloons and includes a night parade and night glow of the balloons as well as a bunch of fun, silly and entertaining events to keep you busy all weekend.

Winter ballooning does require some extra care and attention, but they have launched when the thermometer has read well below zero.
