Adirondack Balloon Festival | North Country Nature Photographer

September 28, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Our 2nd year attending the Adirondack Balloon Festival in Glens Falls, NY was just as amazing as the first (minus the traffic getting to and from the festival from a hotel).  This year we camped in our RV on a hill above the airport that overlooked the balloon launch area.  There were about 100 RV's camped up on the hill and we were surprised when one of the balloons was launched a few feet behind our RV (see picture below).   For information on camping at the festival check out Northeast Hot Air RV'ers.  We camped Friday and Saturday nights and took advantage of the free shuttle to and from the RV area to enjoy the various balloon launches and activities that took place over the weekend.  If you've never been to the festival please seriously consider going some time - it's an amazingly beautiful experience!!  You feel like you're in a different world with all the huge, colorful balloons taking off and floating up above you!  In addition to the balloons there's music, a craft fair, activities for kids, food and even Sunday morning church services under a tent at the airport.  We heard festival attendance broke records this year - I'm guessing most likely due to the surprisingly beautiful summer like weather.  We experienced the "Moon Glow" launch for the first time this year - so amazing to see the burners firing up and the balloons glowing after sunset!!
