A winter time classic returns for another year this weekend when the 11th annual Bluff International Ballon Festival takes to the air.

Are you looking for a fun, friendly and visually beautiful event to lift your January spirits?  The balloon festival has been described as the best intimate rally in the desert Southwest.

Dedicated pilots and enthusiastic visitors return year after year because of the opportunity to fly the unfettered red rock canyons, green river corridor and clear blue skies.  

The festival takes place January 16 - 18 in beautiful Bluff.  For more information, visit or call 435-672-2360.
