This is in the running for my favorite picture of Michelle and me. It was taken last year at the Balloon Festival. You just never know when you're going to get that perfect shot.
So this is my first reminder to you that the 27th annual Hudson Valley Hot-Air Balloon Festival is coming up on July 6, 7 and 8. This terrific Hudson Valley tradition enjoys a world-wide reputation, and has grown over the years to include a full weekend of events, activities and lots of family fun, featuring balloonists and vendors from all over the country! If you've been to the Festival you know how great it is, and if you haven't, you probably have heard about it, so mark your calendars now!
One note: this year the event will take place at the spacious and beautiful Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck.
The Festival is an amazing and unforgettable spectacle. Some of the festival favorites are the evening Majestic Hot-Air Balloon Illumination Moon Glow, tether rides, and rides in the hot-air balloons throughout the weekend! In addition to 100 balloon launches scheduled, there will be helicopter rides, hayrides, games, live music, adult and children's activities and so much more! This is an event not to be missed! Thank you Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce for making the whole thing possible!
All of us at Q92 are proud to be part of the festivities again this year, and will be broadcasting live from the Fairgrounds each day. For advance ticket sales and more information, visit here.
