Snowmass Balloon Festival keeps time with Snowmass Wine Festival


Wine, hot air balloons and a four-course dinner to celebrate - September brings some splendid reasons to stay around town.

This Friday, the Artisan Restaurant features a kick-off wine dinner, starting at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, get up early to see the sky dotted with colors and textures, as the hot air balloons take off and hover over the weekend's festivities.

Enjoy the Snowmass Wine Festival, with a grand tasting from 1-5 p.m. on the Snowmass Village Mall, and samplings of over 300 regional blends.
