I grew up in a place where a hot air balloon festival was an annual event. To see these beautiful balloons en masse was one of the highlights of the year for my town. If you were lucky enough to know a balloon pilot or get a tether ride, it was mind-blowing.
If flying in a hot air balloon is on your bucket list, then I have great news for you.
July 14 & 15, The Hot Air Balloon Glow & Laser Show is coming to the Topsfield Fairgrounds (home to America's oldest county fair), in Topsfield, Massachusetts.
There's more than hot air balloons and a laser light show, since the doors open at 5pm. The event also features retail and craft vendors, a Kidz Zone, rides, all kinds of food vendors, live music, and a DJ. There really is something for everyone.
If you want to try a tethered hot air balloon ride, it's only $25, pending weather.
Check this out. The hot air balloon pilots create "burns" (when the flame goes up into the balloon) and it adds to the already stunning laser light show amongst the balloons to cap off the night at 9pm. It's a visually creative show which "wows" the crowd.
So bring your blanket or chair, and get your tickets at freshtix.com. Tickets are limited, and only $20 per adult, $8 per child. Kids 5 years old and under are free.
Parking is free, but no coolers are allowed. Plan a warm summer night in Topsfield, Massachusetts, now.
