Up Up and Away in a Beautiful Balloon

by Linda Cassella

balloonThe 37th Annual Quechee Hot Air Balloon Craft and Music Festival takes place from June 17-19 in beautiful Quechee, VT. This is longest continuously running Hot Air Balloon Festival in New England and takes place on the Quechee Village Green. The festival has been chosen by Yankee Magazine as one of the top 20 events of summer. It features over 20 hot air balloons, with flights scheduled for 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 17th, 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 18th and Sunday, June 19th (always weather and wind permitting).  Book a ride on one of these magnificent hot air balloons or enjoy the spectacle from the ground.

The fun continues all weekend with continuous music and entertainment for all ages. Walk around the green and browse through over 60 craft artisans and commercial vendors.  There will be plenty of children’s activities to keep the kids occupied including a bounce house and a rock climbing wall.  And, of course, there will be festival food with local healthy options along with a beer and wine garden.
