Telluride Balloon Festival is possibly the most charming event of the summer found in the area. Moreover, admission is free for all events. Over a long weekend in early June, dozens of balloons rise above the town and sail for a mile afar. The highlights of the festival are two mass ascensions that occur on Saturday and Sunday at Telluride Town Park. Balloons are launched at 6 am as early hours provide the best conditions for this activity.

The Main Street Glow on Saturday evening must be a favorite of many. You'll have plenty of opportunities to snap a breathtaking shot, so grab your camera and don't hesitate to attend the Balloon Photo Workshop on Saturday afternoon (1 pm to 2:30 pm, at Christ Presbyterian Church)!
