Erie Town Fair
Every year, Erie’s town fair starts with an early morning hot air balloon launch and pancake breakfast. Dozens of hot air balloons hover over town - it is a sight to see! The fair continues with a selection of local food and retail vendors, a beer garden, live music and dancing. The town completes the day with an evening balloon glow, a fantastic visual display.
