Hot Air Balloon Fest Lifts Off in Lancaster County

Tonight the Community FallFest & Hot Air Balloon Festival in Gap got off the ground, so to speak.

Balloon Festival In Gap

Around 6:00 pm tonight 12 hot air balloons took off from Houston Run in Gap.  It was a beautiful night. Clear blue skies, temperature in the low 70’s. And balloon after balloon slowly rising from the ground and drifting off in pursuit of those that had lifted off just moments before.  Needless to say, the crowd enjoyed the show.
