The Rotary Hot Air Balloon Rally features a full compliment of carnival rides and amusement attractions provided by Miller Amusements. 

Miller Amusements is a New Hampshire-based, family run, traveling midway consisting of a mix of kiddie and family-style amusement rides and games… all operated by a clean and courteous staff.

With over 20 years experience in the operation of amusement rides and midway fun, Miller Amusements has extensive knowledge of ride safety standards and strives to promote an atmosphere where children and adults alike can feel safe and comfortable while experiencing the thrills and laughs of a carnival midway.

We will also have Tethered Hot Air Balloon Rides provided by Re/Max and Helicopter Rides available ~ fun for the whole family!
