The Arc of Dutchess was a proud sponsor of the Dutchess County Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 annual Balloon Festival on July 7th, 8th and 9th. The Festival was held at Barton Orchards. There were lots of family activities such as a petting zoo, hayrides, food trucks, a tap room, bakery and market, fire pits, corn hole, vendors, live music from great bands, helicopter rides and beautiful fireworks displays on Friday and Saturday nights.
Of course, the favorite highlights were still there: Moon Glow, tether rides, and rides in hot air balloons throughout the weekend.
And Speaking of rides check out the photos of Dawn and her support person Tiffany as they went skyward on a balloon ride!
Many Thanks to all of the Balloonists, flight crews and especially to our friends of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce for a truly fun filled weekend.
