My husband and I attended the Hot Air Balloon Festival at Island Park in Wellsville, New York. This annual festival began in the Western NY region and has continued attracting visitors from all over. It is a three-day event festival starts in mid July. Admission is free. Marvel at the hot air balloons as they take off from Island Park and create a magnificent rainbow of color in the sky. The balloons travel along the Genesee River and above the rolling green hills and fields in Western NY.
|Watching as those lifeless balloons are blown up and come alive into beautiful shapes and colors before they take off with it's passengers was such a thrill.|
It was an awesome experience of seeing how those beautiful balloons are prepared for flight. It is a lifetime experience you want on your "To Do" List. Breathtaking views of beautiful, unique and creative hot air balloons floating throughout the skies as far as the eye can see!
Everyone waves to the balloon's passengers as they slowly, softly drift upwards for a journey they will never forget!
