6/5: Hot Air Balloon Rally



Debonné Vineyards (7743 Doty Rd., Madison, 440.466.3485) is a bucolic rural setting at any time. But imagine that countryside filled with brilliantly colored hot-air balloons. This weekend’s 27th annual Hot Air Balloon Rally offers just such a sight. Come out this evening and see the lighted balloons hovering beyond the outdoor patio, where you can savor a glass of Debonné’s Ohio-grown wines, grab a sandwich from the grill and listen to the music by the Castaways from 7-11 p.m. You can do the same tomorrow from noon-8 p.m. (Blues DeVille will provide the music from 3:30-7:30 p.m.), while the balloons are in full flight. There’ll be a skydiving demonstration from 5-6 p.m. A $4 parking fee benefits the local Boy Scouts; otherwise, admission is free. — Anastasia Pantsios
