The Alturas Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the community for coming out and making our 2018 Balloon Fest another great success.

A tasty pancake breakfast welcomed the crowd of balloon enthusiasts at Sharp's Field prior to the balloons taking flight.  There were eleven hot air balloons that showed up to this years festivities and the crowd of on-lookers were treated to a breath-taking array of colors and patterns as the balloons began to take shape during the setup process.

Those who sponsored a balloon were given the opportunity to take a ride high-in-the-sky on a mostly cloudy and very cool day.  The temperature at lift off was in the mid to upper 30's which is perfect conditions for a hot air balloon.

The Alturas Chamber of Commerce would also like to thank the following sponsors for their generosity in supporting this years Balloon Fest:
