Hot Air Balloon Flights

Hot Air Balloon Rides

It's a new world experience that changes how you see the world. A magic carpet ride!  See Chester County from aloft and experience the magic of the natural landscape, rolling hills, trees, ponds, running streams, the way farmers design fields, different colors of houses. It all looks like little miniatures, like you're playing with toys. You might even see deer, a running fox, or a red tail hawk. Everything is beautiful, happy and serene because you're floating on air- riding the wind! As if in a beautiful landscape painting- a steady platform where the earth is moving underneath you while you are staying still! It's magic!

Purchase your flights early as we sold out last year! Proceeds from the Festival go to support the Chester County Hero Fund and other local community groups.
