Hartford Balloon Rally

August 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Harford Chamber of Commerce is super excited to announce the Hartford Balloon Rally will be August 7th, 2021 from noon to 8:00 pm at the Hartford Municipal Airport. The event will include a Balloon launch, a Night Glow, Fireworks, Vintage Airplanes, KMYA Group and More!

We’ll update this post as the event nears!

The Balloon Rally is rain or shine. We will announce if the balloon launch is canceled later this afternoon as it is weather dependent. Again, the balloons will launch 1.5/2 hours before sunset and will be arriving at the airport at 4pm for a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the Balloon Rally back to the community.
