Coshocton Hot Air Balloon Festival was originally called the Coshocton Hot Air Balloon Race. It changed its name to reflect the more encompassing events at this festival. Balloonists from all over Ohio and Michigan come to show off their colorful aircraft. Balloon launches are held at dawn and dusk. And a “night glow” of balloons occurs after dark. Balloonists take part in various events, such as dropping markers while in flight in an attempt to hit a target on the ground. A traditional hot air balloon race sanctioned by the North American Balloon Association is also held during the festivities. Other activities include a 5k run, crafters, live music, carnival rides, and more. Free Admission.
