It’s still Summer for a few more weeks, but we’re already thinking of Fall in the Smokies and the many awesome events that will go on from it. One of them will be going on close to Halloween and it’s a pretty unique event for which there aren’t many like in our region – the Lakeside of the Smokies Balloon Fest going on October 26th to the 27th.
From the TN Vacation website:
“Come experience the fall colors of East TN and Douglas Lake at the First Annual Lakeside of the Smokies Balloon Festival! The festival will take place on the gorgeous Chilton Farm in White Pine, TN, and will take place during the peak autumn leaf season that will provide the perfect backdrop for over 15 hot air balloons as they ascend above Douglas Lake and provide spectacular views of the surrounding rural countryside and the Great Smoky Mountains.
Chilton Farm will be filled with activities on–the-ground and in-the-air! The festival provides family fun for all ages including live bands, antique tractors and engines, local farm fare, climbing walls, kids activities and much more! Join us for an afternoon of family fun for all ages. The balloons will begin to inflate early afternoon with as many as 10 balloons ascending in untethered (free) flight, shape balloons inflating for static display and round balloons providing tethered rides.”
