Fun but a little disappointed

  4 of 5

My daughter & I went last year, we were excited to go on our first tethered balloon ride. Unfortunately it was too windy that day & we ended up waiting around for a long time to see if they would let the balloons up. Luckily there was alot of other activities to check out, but we didnt get to see the balloons at all.

First time I saw the balloons surrounding the sky in pur beautiful Hudson Valley area I thought/reminded myself how lucky I am to grow up and live here. I love community events and learned that we are unique; not many states have as many fairs, events and festivals!

We all really enjoyed ourselves at this festival last year. The little ones loved watching the balloons and the “train” ride. Great selection of fair foods. Would recommend!

Depends on the weather

Unfortunately, it was too windy for the balloons to launch last year. While the kids had fun getting into the baskets and playing games, it was disappointing not to see the balloons in the air.
