The cancellation of the 2020 Red Rock Balloonfest didn’t stop pilots from soaring throughout the area Friday night. Several hot air balloons were spotted near Lake Red Rock and in the region on what was supposed to be the opening night of the 10th annual celebration. Jill Vandevoort with the Red Rock Balloonfest Committee says it was heartbreaking to cancel the event due to safety concerns related to COVID-19, but organizers are hopeful to bring it back in 2021. The next Lake Red Rock Balloonfest will be held July 9-11, 2021.
