SPECIAL EVENT | Festival of Balloons 

The New York State Festival of Balloons turns 34 this year, and will pack another weekend with food, music, and of course, hot air balloons. The festival starts on Thursday, September 3, with the balloon glow at dusk — the burners are ignited, inflating the balloons, and the large group gives off a glow. The festival continues through the weekend with arts and crafts shows; a bird of prey demonstration; music by Lucky Number, Southern Tier All Star Jazz Band, Overhung, and Rebel's Posse; and six balloon launches with rides available for a fee.

The New York State Festival of Balloons will take place Thursday, September 3, through Monday, September 7, at Dansville Municipal Airport. Admission is free, but rides and other attractions carry a fee. For a full schedule of events, visit
