5 Things to Do During Balloon Festival Weekend

Heading to the Lake George area for Balloon Festival Weekend? We’ve got you covered! Check out our picks for five things to do when you come to town for the Adirondack Balloon Festival from September 23-26.

01. Enjoy a wine tasting at Adirondack Winery

Our presenting sponsor will be open all weekend at its locations in Lake George, Bolton Landing, and Queensbury. Stop in for a wine tasting, wine infused snacks, and shop wine accessories. It’s the perfect pick me up after that early morning balloon launch! Click here to book your tasting for the weekend.

02. Americade Motorcycle Rally

Stop by Lake George during the weekend and check out Americade! This massive motorcycle rally is a sight to see. Bikes will line the shores of Lake George and there will be events and activities all weekend long.

03. Take a hike and check out the fall foliage

The end of September will have us well on our way to peak foliage season here in Lake George! No trip to the area is complete without a hike to take in the beautiful fall views. Not a big hiker? Take a drive up to the top of Prospect Mountain and you will see Lake George in all its fall beauty.

04. Kick back with a beer at Adirondack Brewery

End your day with dinner and a beer at festival vendor Adirondack Brewery. Get in the fall spirit with their Oktoberfest beer and sit outside to see if you can spot any balloons!

05. Enjoy the colors from the water

Nothing beats a fall boat ride on Lake George. Escape the business of the village and hop on one of the steamboats for a relaxing cruise. Enjoy a lunchtime boat ride on the Lac du Saint Sacrament end you may just be treated to the stunning sight of hot air balloons floating over the sparkling lake.

Be sure to check out all this and more if you come to the Lake George Area for the Adirondack Balloon Festival. We hope this helps you get your Lake George fall fix in and holds you over until the festival in June!
