Have you ever wondered what it would be like to “ignite the light”, like in Katy Perry’s hit song, Firework? Then mark your calendar to attend the 15th Annual Lexington Balloon Rally and make your own fireworks this Fourth of July!*
Held July 2-5 at the VMI Parade Ground in Lexington, this festival of colors, fun, food and festivities features six hot air balloon launches (yes, you can hitch a ride and light up the night sky for just $199!), crafts, activities, barbeque chicken dinners, concerts, an antique car display, and “Eleanore’s Marketplace”, a tag sale of gently used items. Tethered and daytime balloon rides are also be available.
Admission to the rally is free, and for the convenience of attendees, shuttle buses whisk attendees between their cars and the festival at regular intervals. All proceeds from the event will be donated to more than a dozen local charities.
Enjoy some Shenandoah culture and take in the view on a once-in-a-lifetime experience: a hot air balloon flight! Pair this special event with a stay in one of our cozy cottages at Alpine Hideaway for memories that will last a lifetime.
*Mention code IGNITE to receive a free breakfast when you book your Fourth of July weekend stay at Alpine Hideaway!
