The Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic is back. It is on June 4 and 5 to be held at the Sonoma County Fair Grounds. Gates open at 4 am. Dawn Glow at 5 am. Here is their website https://www.schabc.org/ This event is well worth the early morning “Glow” and launch.
I couldn’t tell for certain: do you happen to know if there will be a Dawn Patrol, where several balloons launch a little before dawn? I captured a winning photo of this 7 or 8 years ago from a ridge on The Bishop’s Ranch (on Westside RD, due west of Windsor)?
