Love Spiedie Fest? Check Out The NYS Festival Of Balloons Labor Day Weekend
Are your plans still up in the air for how you will spend your Labor Day weekend? Well, how about an 'up in the air' plan then? And by that, I mean a Festival of Balloons event.
If you love the amazing times at our own Spiedie Fest, you may love a similar event that's just a two-hour ride to the west of Binghamton. It's the New York State Festival of Balloons in Dansville, New York.
The 41st Annual Dansville Balloon Festival is this Labor Day weekend on September 2nd, 3rd and 4th, at the Dansville Airport on Route 36, which is just off Interstate 390. According to the festival website, the three-day event will feature hot air balloon launches, balloon GLOWs, art & craft vendors, a variety of food vendors, and music
Festival features over the Labor Day Weekend include 6 scheduled balloon launches - 6 pm Friday, 6 am and 6 pm Saturday and Sunday and 6 am on Labor Day Monday. In addition, there are arts and crafts vendors, an international food court, free entertainment, a car show, and kids' rides and amusements.
This event was designated at the New York State Festival Balloons in 1997 and is organized and staffed by volunteers throughout the Dansville community volunteers. The Balloon Festival makes it possible to share profits with local charities and organizations throughout the Dansville area.
