Taking place every September, the Gatesway Balloon Festival is a great way to spend the day, free of charge. The balloon race begins around dawn and continues into the afternoon. After the balloons land a carnival type atmosphere entertains with food, music, and crafts. I took the picture above as a balloon had just finished it’s decent and being deflated. A schedule of events can be found on the attached website
