Park City’s Autumn Aloft

Come enjoy “Autumn Aloft”, a colorful and whimsical launch festival of hot air balloons, amid a canvas of fall trees dotting Park City’s mountainsides. You’ll have the opportunity to get close to the balloons, so plan on snapping some amazing photos or chatting with the pilots about this unique activity. Local resident Gene Moser, along with a group of hot air balloon pilots, first conceived of this event 30 years ago, and Saturday’s launch will be dedicated to his memory. The event takes place September 18 – 20 at multiple launch locations. Fill in the weekend between launch events with our favorite fall activities. Here’s a sample itinerary to make the most of this upcoming autumn weekend:
