City of Helen 100 years

Many have been calling today regarding the hot air balloon race set to begin at 7:00 a.m., Thursday, May 31, 2018. We are happy to report the balloons are scheduled to go up tomorrow morning. Weather permitting, the race will begin at its normal time, but the location has been changed. The balloons will be going up from the field behind the Huddle House and the Surestay Motel (off Narr Weg). If the rain returns, or if the wind is not favorable, the balloons may fill up, but may not be able to leave the ground. We are sorry for the late notice, but a decision has just been reached. Any questions can be directed to the Helendorf Motel at 706-878-2271, the hot air balloon race headquarters. We hope you will join us for this special once a year event.
