Up in the Air
September marks the end of summer, but don’t let that get you down, because it also brings an exciting event for the whole family to Baton Rouge: the Ascension Hot Air Balloon Festival! Located about twenty minutes from our downtown Baton Rouge hotel, this high-flying fest features not just rides in hot air balloons but also live music, carnival rides, a barbecue competition, magic shows and face-painting for kids, tons of food and drinks and even a fireworks show. This massive festival runs from the 25th to the 26th and promises fun for everyone, even if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground!
Address: Lamar Dixon Expo Center, 9039 South Saint Landry Avenue, Gonzales
