CENTRAL HUDSON GAS & ELECTRIC HOT-AIR BALLOON FESTIVAL HOTLINE: (845) 454-1701


As you can imagine, the considerable rain over this past week has caused a challenge with our parking in the farm fields at Tymor Park. We want to make sure everyone who has purchased a ticket has a safe place to park, without a chance of getting stuck in the mud. To that end, we have arranged for an alternate off-site shuttle nearby at Vail Farm Elementary/Middle School during EVENING launch times only. From 2:30pm on, please proceed directly to the school at 1659 E. Noxon Road, Lagrangeville, NY 12540 and you will be shuttled to the festival. On the shuttle, you must wear a face covering per New York State regulation of public transportation, regardless of vaccination status. If you do not have a face covering, we will have one for you. 


If you are coming during the MORNING hours, then parking is on-site at 249 Duncan Road, Lagrangville, NY 12540.

 

Shuttle buses will be running continuously between the school and the park locations starting at 2:30pm, so you may arrive and depart at any time during that period. Any changes to the event schedule will be posted on our Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as www.balloonfesthv.com.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we thank you for your patience and understanding. Please enjoy the 30th Annual Hudson Valley Hot-Air Balloon Festival.
