Reviews From Past Events
We had a great experience for the Saturday morning launch. We expected traffic and gave ourselves plenty of time to arrive early and park. The balloons started to launch around 6:30 and continued for over 1/2 hours. It was awesome.
Highly recommend this festival. The best way to enjoy the beautiful Lancaster countryside with a very talented group of pilots. You won’t find a more scenic balloon ride anywhere on the east coast.
We do not live that far but decided to stay overnight in Lancaster to see the Saturday morning launch and so glad my family and I did. What a wonderful display!! We were thankful for the free parking this morning and my grandson kept saying how awesome it was!! I do not know if we will be able to make it back for the rest of the event but what a wonderful start for the day and we look forward to coming back next year!!!
Awesome time with awesome friends!!! Only festival I’ve been to that you can get that up close and personal with the balloons!! Highly recommend!
The selection and variety of balloon designs are amazing, and I’ve seen them both during the day and at night when they lit up and it is extremely spectacular!
