Ballooning over Kentucky
Hot air ballooning is a magical experience, and one that needs no special reason to merit the occasion. There are a lot of popular destinations for hot air ballooning, and bluegrass country in Kentucky is one of them. Imagine the silent beauty of floating through the air, drifting over the rolling green hills of Kentucky, and enjoying a birds-eye view of Kentucky’s picturesque horse farms far below. With the wind in control of the flight path, hot air ballooning may be one of the only places where a person is truly able to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life. There are a variety of ballooning tour operators in the Kentucky area, including Soaring Sports in Lexington, Balloon Odyssey in Louisville, and EHotAir in Bowling Green.
This spring, Louisville will also host the 46th annual U.S. Bank Kentucky Derby Festival Great Balloon Race. This event, combined with the 26th annual U.S. Bank Kentucky Derby Festival Great Balloon Glow and other events, will create the U.S. Bank Kentucky Derby Festival Great BalloonFest. The event will start on April 26th, and run until April 28th. If you’ve never seen a balloon glow before, it’s an incredibly beautiful experience, and usually garners around 50,000 visitors each year.
