We're headed back again this year, because we LOVE the balloons. Expect to be camping at Skybrook Campground once again. Will you be there? ~Jim, 2010
DANSVILLE, NY (2009) Here's a sampling of the hectic prep-work at Dansville's Festival of Balloons (NYSFB at Dansville). More pics to come, later in the week.
Team USA takes the foreground. At least eight others warm up for launch.
Primary colors crowd out the tulip balloon. The rest struggle to catch up.
"Fire in the hole!" It takes a big burn and lots of helping hands to get these monsters aloft.
No less than 40 hot air balloons launched on a spectacular Sunday evening at Dansville. For once, the weather cooperated for the entire Labor Day Weekend 2009. More pics to follow.
