My husband and I went early this morning, sunrise actually, to the
Metro NY Balloon & Music Festival,
being held August 10th, 11th & 12th at Brookhaven Calabro Airport.
Unfortunately, a north wind kept the balloons from flying.
As one balloon owner said, "...in this wind, nowhere to go but the ocean!"
It was wonderful to watch the balloons fire up and get ready.
For more information, directions and the festival information, visit the website..here.
I will tell you that it costs $10 to park and $25 per person to enter, so it is not an inexpensive family activity.
No coolers are allowed but you can bring in a folding chair.
Hope you enjoy your Long Island weekend!
