Quechee Hot Air Balloon Festival takes place every year and is the longest-running “must-see” summer event in New England. The skies over Quechee in Vermont and New Hampshire are filled with stunning colorful hot air balloons.
You even have a chance to try a balloon ride yourself. Tethered Hot Air Balloon Ride, which lasts 5–10 minutes, will cost you $20 per person with no reservations. The price for Full Hot Air Balloon Ride is $265 per person, with 30-40 mins in the air. This ride needs a preliminary booking.
The Quechee Hot Air Balloon weekend also features a tremendous Craft & Music Festival with over 60 commercial vendors and craft artisans selling their goods. All this display is usually accompanied by loud music, festival food, and endless entertainment. The entrance to the festival will cost you $15. The cost for kids is $5.
