Hot air balloons: Festivals and races


We noticed an influx of gorgeous pictures shared by our community this year and wondered if there’s an upward trend for balloon flights. According to Wikipedia’s festival list, close to 90 events currently support ballooning popularity on an annual basis, which excludes areas offering regular balloon tours. Plenty of festivals featuring mass ascensions of hot air balloons welcome you and your camera, including ones here: Great Reno Balloon Race, Taiwan Balloon Festival, Colorado Balloon Classic, and Kinsmen Cornwall Lift Off.
