Everyone in the Central Valley knows that September is a month of hot air balloons. ClovisFest & Hot Air Balloon Fun Fly is an annual festival, which takes place over a weekend late in the month at Clovis Rodeo Grounds in Old Town Clovis. Apart from hot air balloons, this free event offers a street fair and entertainment for the whole family.

The take-offs at the ClovisFest are typically scheduled on Saturday and Sunday mornings, at dawn between 6 and 7 am. So if you want to admire the spectacle, come before sunrise. As a bonus, you'll be treated to some delicious breakfast items as you wait for the festivities, which run from 8 am through 5 pm. Note that balloon rides are not available to the public. However, you can enjoy tethered rides.
