Are you looking for something to take your weekend to new heights? Vevay will do the trick. This South-Central town is hosting Switzerland County’s first Hot Air Balloon Rally at Paul Ogle Riverfront Park.
The rally kicks off on Friday evening, June 22. Children (those under 12) can enjoy glow sticks, glow in the dark games, glow stick balloons and glowing bubbles from 7:30-8pm. At 8:30pm, spectators can ogle at the Balloon Glow, a lighted hot air balloon. And, it’s all free!
Enjoy the riverfront during the community picnic from 2-5pm on Saturday, June 23. The county will also host a county-wide yard sale from 11am-5pm.
The grand finale is, of course, the hot air balloon launch and landing. Visitors can view about 15 hot air balloons on the grounds at 4pm. The balloons will officially lift off around 5pm with landing expected around 7pm.
In case of inclement weather, spectators are encouraged to check for updates on the Switzerland County Tourism Facebook and Twitter accounts. Contact the Switzerland County Visitors Center at 812.427.3237 for up-to-the-minute information and balloon launch status.
