Sequim Balloon Festival

Dear Sequim visitors,
Guess what?! Now we don't only have a Sequim Irrigation Festival in May and a Sequim Lavender Festival in July, our newest attraction is Sequim Balloon Festival in September for three days over Labor Day weekend. Actually, balloons already took off each morning from a field next to Sequim Airport. They were flying passengers early in the morning, when winds have not picked up yet, for a fee of $250/person for a sightseeing over Sequim.

We decided this morning at 6am to get ourselves some glimpses of the hot air balloons + photos at Sequim Airport. Alas an early fog made it in from Sequim Bay. When we returned at 7:15am to Sequim Airport, to our surprise the fog had lifted, lots of visitors and 7 air balloons and their teams had gathered for a spectacular exciting event: the filling and taking off of the balloons.

Tomorrow Saturday September 1 will be the first day of the official Sequim Balloon Festival. The Festival site will be a field, next to Purple Haze Lavender Farm, off W.Sequim Bay Road. There will be a dozen balloons, including the Little Bee Balloon team - we hope to still be able to post of photo of those - an evening Night Glow, a Hare and Hound balloon race on Monday morning, a classic car show, live music, arts & craft booths, street dances, beer & wine garden and so much more. For tickets & more details visit Sequim Balloon Festival.

Now let's enjoy Sequim Ballon Festival photos:
