Kite Flying at the Adirondack Balloon Festival
Many families flock to the airport on Balloon Festival weekend and hope for a good breeze because hot air balloons aren't the only colorful things taking flight at the event! Tailgating on the runway has become an event in itself, where children and adults alike fly kites from all over.
Queensbury Airport becomes a massive festival with grills, picnic tables and every outdoor game imaginable from soccer and lacrosse to football and ladder ball. Friends from all over meet and enjoy the art show, buy crafts and taste food from the top restaurants around the north country as they peddle their fare. A trip to the bounce house is a must for the kids!
And don't worry, if you don't have a kite, they'll sell you one. Get more details on this year's Adirondack Balloon Fest!
