Welcome to the 2009 Chester County Balloon Festival.
If you are looking for something special to do this weekend, the West Bradford Youth Athletics(WBYA) began their 2 day event this evening off Telegraph Rd in West Bradford Township. All proceeds from the Chester County Balloon Festival will benefit the WBYA.
Sponsored by Suburban Propane, Chester County's Brandywine Valley, and the West Bradford Youth Athletics, the Festival successfully kicked off Friday Night under perfect conditions with rides, vendors, and its Friday Night Glow Party. The party itself was a sell out, and there were plenty of vendors and additional viewing areas open to the public for just a $5.00 parking donation.
The events will resume on Saturday morning, when there will be a 6:15AM morning group launch. Then the Festival will pick up again as the gates open to the public at 3:00PM for Saturday's activities. There will plenty of craft vendors, moonbounces, tethered balloon rides, and food during the afternoon and the festival will remain open until dusk. Weather permitting, there will also be a mass balloon launch between 5:30 and 6:30 pm. This will be followed by a Special Shapes Show between 6:30 and 7:30PM.
If you want something fun for the whole family, this is a great local event to sit back relax and enjoy the show and it is another great chance to take advantage of all this area has to offer.
Please take this opportunity to support West Bradford Youth Athletics.
