SARATOGA COUNTY (WRGB) - The Saratoga Balloon and BBQ Festival is June 22-24 at the Saratoga County Fairgrounds.
This is the fifth year of the event. The festival was originally held on Father's Day, but was moved this year. It also was originally called the Balloon and Craft Festival, but organizers decided to add a big BBQ component this year instead.
"There's nothing more appealing than mouth-watering barbecue," Christian Dutcher, co-organizer, from Americade said in a release. "With the barbecue and bacon additions, no one will be disappointed."
There will also be beer and wine, live entertainment, a marketplace, kids activities, and of course several colorful hot air balloons. You can take a ride in one, or watch the Glow Friday night.
The event begins Friday June 22 at 3pm and closes after the Glow. Saturday runs from 10am-8pm. Sunday runs from 10am-4pm. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
