Hot air balloons sail over Letchworth State Park

CASTILE, N.Y. (WIVB) — One of America’s most beautiful parks was momentarily more beautiful over the weekend.

Hot air balloons by the dozens floated over the park, which encompasses part of the Genesee River, and dipped down into the gorge. Pilots flew the balloons as part of a Memorial Day weekend tradition called the red, white and blue rally.

Recently, readers of USA Today voted Letchworth State Park as the best State-run park in the nation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
