Hot Air Balloons have just been added as part of the big Bicentennial celebration all summer long in Hannibal. We can confirm from the Hannibal Bicentennial Facebook page that the Hot Air Balloon Festival will be June 22 and 23 at the Hannibal Regional Airport. On Saturday the 22nd of June there will be a launch before sunset and then a balloon glow as the sunsets, followed by another day launch on the 23rd. For more information on the Hannibal Bicentennial celebration go to www.hannibal2019.com.

This summer just keeps filling up with fantastic events to get outside with friends and family, and enjoy the beautiful weather. This will be one of the many can't miss events of the Hannibal Bicentennial for sure. I for one would love to take a hot air balloon ride, I have never done it but it seems like a total blast and a great way to see the beauty around our area.
