Hot Air Balloon Rides Highlight Event

Farmington, PA (September 21, 2011) –The fourth annual Fall Festival at Nemacolin Woodlands is slated for October 8, 2011. This year’s event begins at 11:00 a.m. and will feature hot air balloon rides as well as activities and offerings for guests of all ages.  

 “Our Fall Festival was originally planned to showcase the beauty of this season in the Laurel Highlands and provide an opportunity for families to spend the day together,” said Chris Plummer, General Manager of the luxury resort southeast of Pittsburgh.  “This event has grown substantially and the addition of the hot air balloon rides will certainly provide our guests a spectacular view of the mountains in all of their splendor. Each year, we explore different options when planning the festival to make certain that we offer something for every member of the family.”

For the first time ever, admission to the Fall Festival is complimentary and an All Access Pass for resort activities including the Fat Bird Flyer Zip Line, Jeep Ride Alongs and the ropes courses will be available at a deeply discounted price. Hot air balloon rides will be handled on a first come, first served basis and are $10.00 for adults and $8.00 for children 4 through 12. Fall Festival 2011 will once again feature a Craft Beer Brewfest with more than 50 beers supplied by vendors and brewers from throughout the region.  An additional fee for admission to this venue provides unlimited tasting for our guests over 21.  Skill contests and prizes will highlight the 4th Fall Finale Golf Scramble, a nine hole event on the Links Golf Course while a candy apple making session and pumpkin carving demonstration are new to the festival.
 
Live entertainment will be provided by The Delaneys, Chuck Cantalamessa and Reggaematic.  Fans can come out and meet their favorite on-air personalities as radio partner WDVE will broadcast from the resort’s Adventure Center on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

A Craft Fair features local artisans exhibiting a wide variety of handcrafted items including jewelry, candles, hand knitted apparel and woodcrafts.   Nemacolin’s popular carnival games as well as bounce houses and more will be offered for children along with arts and crafts and a Pumpkin Patch.
