The Picture the Sky Balloon Rally is part of the Windsor Harvest Festival. Each morning during Labor Day weekend you can witness hot air balloons fill the Windsor skies. The hot air balloon launch takes place at several local parks. The most popular launch point is at Eastman Park.
The hot air balloon launch is early in the morning and seeing the balloons fill up is part of the excitement. This is a great event to bring your kids and COFFEE to!
Before the launch many pilots will answer questions, pose for pictures, and let kids jump in the baskets for an “on the ground” experience.
Tips for Attending a Hot Air Balloon Launch
- Bring a chair or blanket. It takes a while for the balloons to set up and fill up. You should bring something to sit on.
- Wear closed toe shoes. Launch take place on grassy fields early in the morning so think “dewy grass”. Don’t end up with soggy toes.
- Dress in layers, as the sun rises so does the temperatures.
- Come camera ready! There is nothing more photogenic than bright balloon filled skies!
