This is Week In The Arts — a curation of virtual events, exhibits and reopenings around the Roaring Fork Valley.
The Snowmass Balloon Festival runs from Friday, Sept. 11 through Sunday, Sept. 13. The hot-air balloons will take off from 7-10 a.m. each morning, and the night glow event will be held on Friday from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Due to social distancing guidelines, guests are encouraged to watch this year’s display from afar.
