Almost a dozen hot air balloons and a packed crowd of balloon enthusiasts attended the 2017 Alturas Chamber of Commerce Ballon Festival and Duck Drop fundraiser at Sharp's Field in Alturas on September 16th.

The annual Duck Drop Fundraiser highlighted the starting of the event which was held prior to the balloons taking flight.

This years winners are as follows:
