From June 1-3, experience one of the most beautiful sights of the summer season at the 2018 Telluride Balloon Festival as dozens of hot air balloons take to the skies.

The 35th annual Telluride Balloon Festival is almost here! And you're invited to watch as dozens of huge, brilliantly colored hot air balloons take over the skies of Telluride. Not only is it a beautiful sight to behold, but it's an event that the entire family can enjoy as you kick off the summer season! The balloons will launch from Town Park and sail across the valley before landing about a mile out of town. Each launch will start at sunrise, with some lucky guests having the opportunity to help get them in the air! Then, on Saturday night, visit Main Street as the balloons are inflated as they light up the street. Please keep in mind that the festival is subject to weather conditions and may have some delays/cancellations. [gallery type="rectangular" size="large" ids="37631,37629"]
