Revelers keep an eye on the sky during the high-flying Stoweflake Hot Air Balloon Festival. Now in its 31st year, this gravity-defying affair features more than 25 colorful vessels floating above the Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa. Adventurous attendees can brave the heights to experience both tethered and free-flying balloon rides. Between a food, beer and wine tent, a spa station, live music, and an activity-packed kids’ corner, those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground won’t be left hanging on Friday and Saturday. Early risers can catch a few moments of calm contemplation during Saturday and Sunday’s fanfare-free Morning Quiet Launches. Up, up and away!
Price: $10; free for kids under 12; $10 tethered rides; $275 balloon rides.
