Snowmass Village Balloon Festival, all the events that happen this weekend were free.
It was a beautiful morning in Snowmass Village for a balloon festival, this year 34 participants were scattered across the sky for the Sunday morning launch.
It’s a 3-day event, which starts on Friday and ends on Sunday. Durning the 3-day event below is a list of some of the activities you may enjoy.
- Each morning starts off with a competition such as a race, targets or maneuvers. Followed by all balloons floating over head, it’s spectacular to see the beautiful balloons dance in the sky.
- Kids’ Elevation Station – bouncy house, face painting, balloon making and balloon rides happen at the kid’s area.
- Wine & sake tastings, food tastings from local restaurants, music, kids’ activities, local vendors & artisans, and more.
- Night Glow and music, balloons inflate and glow to the beat of the music that is being performed on stage.
Didn’t make it to the balloon festival but would love to see the valley from above, then you should check out Above It All Balloon. Several years ago for my birthday, I went for a hot air balloon ride. It was a perfect morning, we sailed up and over Brush Creek mountain then landed in Old Snowmass. The journey ended with a champagne toast!
