The 47th annual Carolina BalloonFest is set to take flight Oct. 14-16 in Statesville. In addition to the dozens of hot air balloons that will decorate the skies of Iredell County throughout the weekend, there will be live music, a wine and craft beer garden featuring North Carolina brewers and vintners, and family-friendly activities.

The popular evening balloon glow flights will also return to light up the night Friday and Saturday. Tethered balloon rides will also be available, weather permitting.
