The sky's the limit at this three-day festival.
Go up, up and away at America’s premier hot air balloon festival. For the second year, this three-day festival is coming to the Three County Fairgrounds in Northampton, Friday July 12 through Sunday, July 14.
The Northeast Balloon Festival will feature a food festival, vendor expo, craft beer, amusement rides and games, petting zoo, and live music. And of course, there's the chance to take a ride in a hot air balloon; hop on a tethered balloon for $20 a person on-site, or contact a pilot to arrange a full ride ahead of the festival.
There will be 17 hot air balloons in total at the event, including balloons shaped like the Looney Toones characters Tweety Bird and Puddy Cat.
The activities are set to kick off July 12 at 3 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the festival will end with a "balloon glow" starting at 9 p.m.
Admission $15 at the gates; children 12 and under are free.
