Hot Air Balloon Festivals

Although there are hot air balloons festivals around the world, some of the best hot air balloon festivals in the U.S. just take a short plane trip or fun road trip to get to! Many enthusiasts enjoy popular air balloon festivals in California and throughout the country. The closest one to us is the Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic, which takes place every June.
