If you are in the area around Natchez Oct. 14-16 then don’t miss this great opportunity.

Great Mississippi River balloon race

and a great place to camp just 10 miles away Natchez state park

I hope to see you there.

Best place to shoot the flights are

Morning: Launch site or if you prefer in flight  would be the Natchez national cemetary ( This would afford views with the river and bridge)

Afternoon would be the launch site and the River walk on the Vidalia, La. side. This would put the sun behind you each flight.

The Friday night fireworks would be great from the Vidalia river walk with the reflections in the river and the bridge included( If you go south of the bridge and shoot north)
