For three full days, it was balloons galore in Wellsville. A balloon bonanza, if you will — and not the balloons you can get at a restaurant after dinner or a “Happy Birthday” balloon you can find just anywhere. We’re talking about hot air balloons, brightly colored and patterned, floating through the sky with grace.

The Great Wellsville Balloon Rally offered four hot air balloon launches and fireworks throughout the weekend (Friday, July 20-Sunday, July 22). Balloon rides were available for those in attendance, and there was even a “Best Pizza in Wellsville” contest. Take a look at the scene, captured in photos.
