Every year, we have a hot air balloon festival all throughout Dutchess County. In the evenings, the balloons launch from separate locations, and in the morning, they all launch along the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie.
Sadly, I was unable to attend the morning launches this year, but I did spot one balloon on my way out of Vassar Farm last Friday evening.
For those of you interested in seeing what the morning launch typically looks like, I have photos from last year on the Walkway Over the Hudson. You can view the gallery below:
