Saratoga Balloon and BBQ Festival 

 

Ballston Spa, New York - The 5th Annual Saratoga Balloon and BBQ Festival (formerly the Saratoga Balloon and Craft Festival) will be held June 22 to 24, 2018, at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds in Ballston Spa, NY (162 Prospect St).

This family-friendly event celebrates the best of the capital region with bountiful BBQ, live entertainment, shopping, kids activities, and balloons. Festival goers will also find craft beer, wine slushies, street performers, an art and craft marketplace, pony rides, and the balloons.

 

During the weekend the Festival expects to launch up to 100 balloons. Perhaps the most exciting single event is the Friday evening Balloon Glow at dusk. Festival organizer Tim Cianciola says, “It’s magical.”

After four successful years, the event organizers realized that they wanted to create a bigger and better event. “With all the great entertainment our audience can have an enjoyable day,” Cianciola points out. “And let’s not dismiss the balloons as they ascend as a parade of skyward seeking colorful balloons.”

 

The show opens on Friday at 3pm and closes after the Balloon Glow. Saturday runs from 10am until 8pm. Sunday hours are 10am-4pm.

 

Adult admission is $10, kids $5.

 

Advance sales tickets are available on the the Festival website www.balloonandbbq.com. No dogs are allowed at the Fairgrounds.
