Sequim skies are going to have a new event! In 2012, over Labor Day weekend, Sequim will host the inaugural Sequim Balloon Festival. Organizers expect about 20 balloons and will have early morning group launches, balloon rides, and a “night glow” when balloonists will turn on their heaters to illuminate the floating beauties. There will also be music, races, a children’s play space, a wine-grape stomp, and a food court.
The organizers have found that this period, Sept. 1-3, is among our best weather time and rarely sees rain or high winds. If you’re considering a trip to Sequim, it might be fun to come to this new event.
