Carolina BalloonFest began over 40 years ago as ‘The National Balloon Rally” and is well-renowned as the second oldest hot air balloon festival in the United States. Located in the Southeast, the Carolina blue skies offer a magnificent backdrop to over 50 majestic hot air balloons each 3rd weekend of October in Statesville, North Carolina.
