hotairballoonsIf you are near Foley, Alabama this weekend, you must stop by the 6th Annual Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival. From June 18 to the 20th, you can see over 45 of these brilliantly colored hot air balloons against the bright blue Alabama sky.

At night, see them lit up as they float through the sky.  There is so much to see around the festival besides the balloons. Listen to some great bands, check out the children’s village and visit the arts and crafts booths. We have been attending the balloon festival for the past three years and my children are always amazed by the majestic balloons floating through the sky. Not on the Gulf Coast? Hot Air Balloon has listings for hot air balloon festivals all over the world.

Have you ever been to a balloon festival? Which one?
