Sunday, July 14: More than 300 cars will be on view throughout the beautiful grounds at Locust Grove, the mansion once home to artist and inventor of the telegraph Samuel F. B. Morse.
Friday, July 12-Sunday, July 14: Want to take a flight in a hot-air balloon, or go aloft on a tethered ride? No problem. A helicopter ride more your speed? Yeah, you can do that, too.

Or view the Illumination Moon Glow on Friday and Saturday evenings: a stationary display of hot-air balloons with their burners fired up, glowing against the night sky? A greater number than ever of the eyecatching “shape balloons” are expected this year – which have included lighthouses, cartoon animals and even a tuxedo balloon – and the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome will get into the act, too, with an antique airplane display and flyovers (wind and weather permitting, as is true of all flight activities over the weekend).

You don’t need to go all the way to New Mexico to enjoy the splendor of hot-air balloons massing in the sky, or to cross experiencing a skyride in one off your bucket list.
