Mike and Cathie Tassinari sent us the calendar of events for the 2016 Hot Air Balloon Festival. The gathering starts this Friday, July 22nd and runs until Sunday at the University of Rhode Island Athletic Fields in Kingston, Rhode Island.
Here is the information about the rally from Mike and Cathie:
