Waiting for Balloons Waiting for Balloons

Each June, Cambridge, NY is host to a Balloon Festival. It's one of my favorite events of the year. Early in the morning or just before sunset, you can watch the balloons fill up with hot air.

You'd be surprised how many of us get up at 5:30 am to witness the show, then go to the Cambridge Diner for one of Dawn's hearty breakfasts. I loved the sausage, egg, and cheese that Bill made at Bean Heads Coffee House. I'll miss sitting outside and watching the people go by.

Once they are airborne, all over town crowds gather to watch as the balloons float up, up and away.

You can take a balloon ride or enjoy any of the Festival events.
This year's Festival is slated for June 8-11, 2006. See you there!
