The Animas Valley Balloon Rally began Friday morning in Hermosa.
Over the weekend, about 20 pilots will fly balloons in the Animas Valley. Launches will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
A “balloon glow” – where a string of pilots illuminate their balloons on the ground – will be held around 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the launch site in Hermosa. On Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as Saturday evening, tethered hot air balloon rides will be offered for $10.
