PHOTOS: Hot air balloons take to the sky in Pittsfield for festival
PITTSFIELD - It was a colorful start to the day as nearly a dozen hot air balloons took to the sky in the annual Pittsfield Rotary Hot Air Balloon Festival.
The balloons launched at 5:30 a.m. and hovered over the Suncook River.
The festival - also known as the Pittsfield Balloon Rally - usually happens during the first week of August every year. Balloons came as far away as New York this year.
