2014 Puget Sound Balloon Festivals
All 2013 Sequim Balloon events are cancelled - www.PugetSoundBalloonFestivals.com
Closest Balloon Festivals for 5 million people
Hot Air Balloons attract crowds. There are a few balloonists in Washington, but not many. Unfortunately the sport is so expensive not many balloonists obtain a break even sponsorhip to travel to balloon festivals, so a lot of them stay at home.
Randall Tomaras put the first Puget Sound balloon festival on in 10 years in 2012 just to test the waters. It not only had an economic impact on the community, but it brought the community fun and excitment.
In an effort to make it more economically viable for the balloonists that travel long distances, he is organizing three weekends in a row in the Puget Sound area.
Since ballooning is an early morning event (6-9) and an evening event (6-9) he is looking for other events to partner up with around late August or early September. We will keep you posted as locations and dates progress.

Why not Sequim in 2013
It is a pretty place but it is too far away from the population base for a 6 AM event and the lodging is limited.It is not that people do not travel over here, but there are only 5,000 beds on the entire Peninsula which is bigger than 5 states, and ferries do not run at 4 am
