The sky over the Saratoga Country Fairgrounds is set to get a little more color next weekend.

If you have ever seen a hot air balloon floating through the sky, it's a stop what your doing and just watch type of moment. Am I right? There is just something special and peaceful about those colorful hot air bubbles rising to the heavens. Next weekend will be full of those in the Ballston Spa sky with the return of the Saratoga Balloon and BBQ Festival.

After taking a year off and postponing the event originally scheduled for June, the Troy Record says the festival will take flight Friday, August 27th through Sunday, August 29th. The festival website says there will be balloon launches, tethered balloon rides, a balloon glow, helicopter rides, a kids zone, and lot of great entertainment, and well some amazing barbeque.

According to the festival website, the BBQ options will allow you "...see, smell, and taste the best from around the US." Plus on-site they are holding the US Steak Cooking Championships. (Um, free samples please!)

You can purchase your advance festival tickets here. Plus you can also purchase balloon rides here!
