Come for the weekend and explore
Hillsborough's many small town attractions
The Hillsborough Balloon Festival and Fair has become a major four day event since it was created by merging the former
Hillsborough Firemen's Weekend and Hillsborough Balloon Festival.
Recently, an Artist's Fair has been established during Balloon Festival weekend, sponsored by the Hillsborough Area Artisans. The Hometown Parade on Sunday has grown to include many civic groups with marching bands, floats,
military personnel and a wide assortment of fire apparatus from all over New Hampshire.
But the thrill of the weekend are the Hot Air Balloons piloted and crewed by regional balloon enthusiasts.
Balloon flights over New Hampshire's beautiful Monadnock Region are available to the general public
along with tethered flights for the more cautious.
