The annual Quechee Hot Air Balloon, Craft and Musical Fest claims to be the longest running balloon festival in New England as it finds itself in its 30th year. The weekend-long festival is a family-oriented event that includes many attractions for every age. Copious vendors of food and drink, over 50 artisans showing and selling their wares, and continuous live entertainment do not leave you much down time. The best part of any balloon fest for me is the wee early morning, or at dusk glow time, or twinkle time, when the balloons use their fire to light up the sky in a different manner.
The Fest runs from June 19-21 at the Village Green Circle. If riding in a hot air balloon is your reason for attending, reservations are recommended, so call 1-800-295-5451 today. Admission Tickets are good for the entire weekend. Adults are $10, Children 5-12 are $5, and children under 5 are FREE!! Dads (accompanied by a child) get half-price admission on Sunday. Happy Father's Day!!
