Summer is the season for outdoor activities and glowing functions. Balloon festivals are part of social life celebrated throughout America, entertaining young and old.

Hot air Ballon Festivals

Hot air balloon festivals are held all over the world throughout the year, allowing hot air balloons to gather people and participate in various activities. These Balloon Festivals include balloon races, various competitions and evening “night glows”, in which balloons are fired while remaining tethered to the ground. Balloon Festivals are popular in the USA boosting individual as well as social lives of all kinds of people. They promote friendship and sportive spirit.

Balloon Festival is an occasion of family and community entertainment. Balloon racing develops sportive spirit, community involvement, and provides healthy entertainment for all. Balloon festivals bring together communities into united activities.

Balloon Festival at Canton

A Balloon Festival was organized at Kent State University Campus at Stark, Canton in Ohio to mark its Balloon Classic Invitational 25 Year history. The three-day program celebrated from July 29, 2011 on behalf of the Canton regional and Jackson- Belden Chambers of Commerce had been an occasion of pleasure to thousands of people of not only of Canton and Akron but also from cities around. The Balloon Luminary or the Night Glow is a special attraction of the festival events that never fail to draw thousands exciting both the pilots and the spectators. Dozens of balloons participate in the balloon race. Enshrinement Festival’ annual photo contests provide active participation of artists making it more exciting.

As usual, the “Dawn Patrol” marked the start of this year’s Balloon Festival with five balloons launching into the pre-dawn sky providing an excellent break-feast of beautiful sky luminary for Stark County’s early risers.

Now, it is natural to think if there is any benefit to spend such an enormous amount of energy and money to while away time during these three days.
