A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend the Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic. This dreamy event takes place once a year, and it’s literally the most beautiful sight I have ever seen.
If you know me, you know that I love to sleep. However, I was willing to wake up at 3:30am (yes!) to get to the event in time. Once I arrived, I couldn’t believe my eyes. There’s something so peaceful about a hot air balloon – I don’t know if it’s the way they drift or the beautiful colors, but I was completely in awe.
And besides it being beautiful, this event is perfect for families too (aside from the early wake-up call, of course). The set-up boasts food booths, music, tons of magnificent balloons, and lots of activities throughout the day.
Last but definitely not least, the Hot Air Balloon Classic is a hot commodity, so if you’re interested in seeing it for yourself, be sure to plan ahead (there’s a ton of traffic and it sells out quickly!). I highly recommend this event – it’s something the whole family will enjoy!
