2015 Page Balloon Regatta

By Ryan / October 14, 2015

UPDATE: The 2015 Page Balloon Regatta has come and gone. Check out pageregatta.com for 2015 pictures, and information on the upcoming regatta!

Every first weekend of November, balloonists from around the country gather in Page to enjoy a weekend of balloon launches, open air festivals, and nighttime balloon glows. Find out more here!

I snagged the schedule of events from their website but it may change so you should go check out the official site before making any plans. If you’ve got some extra time, people who volunteer to help set up and deflate the balloons for the weekend have a good chance of getting a flight on Sunday. Contact the Regatta committee on their website to find out more.
