Don’t forget your camera for this special two-day event as we welcome back 20+ hot air balloonists to Shanty Creek and Bellaire.

Join us atop the slopes of Summit Mountain behind the Lakeview Hotel from 6-8pm on Friday and Saturday evenings as teams of balloonists take flight.  With Lake Bellaire’s backdrop the sky will come alive with color. There is no charge to attend. Enter through the Conference Center (north entrance) of the hotel. Parking is free.

Special thanks to this year’s sponsors: Alden State Bank, Short’s Brewing Company, and of course The Dockside, Sarducci’s, and The Shanty.
