year the Balloon Festival in the Poconos takes place
between October 13th -15th. During the festival you
can enjoy some of the best food and drink in the area
while watching dozens of hot air balloons in the sky's
over the Poconos mountains. During the first night of
the festival you can watch the balloon captains work
on there balloons and fill them up for the early morning
launch. If you would like to take a ride in the Hot
air Balloons most are available for rent. These rides
can be expensive so make sure you have your wallet.
If you cant afford your own ride in a hot air balloon
there are plenty of other activities to entertain you
and your family.
Local craft vendors bring in all the goodies,
setting up booths offering a taste of the Poconos mountains.
There is always live music that is appropriate for people
of any age. If you have kids with you they can enjoy
themselves riding on many of the carnival rides there
is also face painting. If you don't feel like spending
the whole weekend at the hot air balloon festival you
can also enjoy the many golf courses, lakes and parkland
in the area.
