Utah is home to some of the best balloon festivals in the West.
Beginning in January, The Bluff International Balloon Festival brings 30-some pilots to the red rocks of south eastern Utah.
In June, balloon enthusiasts will find festivals at the Springville Art City Days, the Sevier County “Eyes to The Sky” festival in Salina, and the Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally.
Check with a nearby BBIU member inn Innkeeper for accommodations. The Red Brick Inn of Panguitch, and Salt Lake Metro area members are good choices.
September 19-21 brings back to Park City its much-loved Autumn Aloft. After some 20 years, the event will host 15 invited balloons. BBIU members in Park City or in the greater Wasatch Back area are great choice for accommodations.
Always be sure to ask your innkeeper for their favorite viewing spots.
