The Rotary Club presents the signature activity of the week: the gathering of colorful hot-air balloons for a rally over the scenic Shenandoah Valley. Visitors seeking a breathtaking trip may purchase rides for the evening of July 2, for the mornings and evenings of July 3 and 4, and again for the morning of July 5. Launch times are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. or 6:30 a.m., but may vary because of weather and winds. For information and reservations, call 540-461-0402 . Tethered balloon rides, for adults and children, will also be available at 7:30 p.m. on July 3rd and 4th, weather and winds permitting. Reservations are not needed for the tethered rides.
