This week will be all about the Washington County Fair but one month from now, the Adirondack Balloon Festival will be underway with balloons returning to Crandall Park for its annual and kick off event.
The Adirondack Balloon Festival released its official schedule on Monday with entertainment and all the happenings for the annual four-day event, which attracts thousands to the region.
A block party will continue the festivities in downtown Glens Falls from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Sept. 20.
The festival will start at about 4 p.m. with an opening ceremony scheduled for 5 p.m. followed by the inflation and liftoff of 20 balloons.
The festival will then shift to Warren County airport for Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday morning before returning to Crandall Park on Sunday evening to bookend the festival.
The festival also reminds attendees to refrain from smoking and no dogs or remote control aircrafts are permitted.
