The Great Mississippi River Balloon Race
100 Orleans St
Natchez, MS United States 39120
Third weekend in October
Number of balloons: 70-100
Join us for the best festival in Mississippi! Held on the grounds of beautiful and historic Rosalie on bluffs high above the Mississippi River where live world class entertainment keeps your feet moving while over 60 hot air balloons drift silently overhead. An on-site carnival and arts and crafts fair make this one of most family friendly events in the state. In addition we offer a sports tent to keep up with all of the big games in college and the NFL all weekend long, all without missing a thing going on at the rest of the festival grounds.
Local vendors serve up regional culinary treats that can be washed down with a cold beer at our Oktoberfest style biergarden, called Blufftoberfest, featuring local craft beers.
