Saratoga Area Fun – Saratoga Balloon and Craft Festival

Hot Air Balloon Blog

There are many things that I love about being a real estate agent based in Saratoga County. The county is full of lifestyle choices from rural areas, suburban neighborhoods, villages, hamlets and cities. There is pretty much an area for everyone, I chose a rural area. Additionally, there is tons to do within the limits and summer events are very popular.

One of the area’s most popular events is coming up – one that myself and many of my friends enjoy. The Saratoga Balloon and Craft¬†Festival is a wonderful family-friendly event held annually at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds in Ballston Spa. Each year the festival brings many beautiful and unique balloons.

Balloon launches occur daily, weather permitting of course for everyone’s safety. You can take a tethered balloon ride or experience a true hot air balloon ride. The Saratoga Balloon and Craft Festival also is host to the “best balloon glow in the U.S.”

In addition to all of the balloons, there are many amazing artisans that exhibit during the festival. From paintings to jewelry, home decor, specialty foods and many other one-of-a-kind items you can find all sorts of neat stuff that make great gifts for a friend or yourself. There will also be demonstrations by select exhibitors – see how they make their creations!

As mentioned it is a family-friendly event. There is tons for kids to do at the Stewart’s Shops Kid Zone. Check out the Walk-About Balloon, Petting Zoo, or have your face painted! There is live music and food vendors making this a great all-day activity.

So if you are looking for something to do in the Saratoga area this summer, this is one event you don’t want to miss. You can purchase tickets and learn more about the fair on the Saratoga Balloon and Craft Festival website. Even purchase a ticket for a hot air balloon ride! Keep your fingers crossed for good weather and I hope I see you there.
