History of Hot Air Ballooning & Experience a Balloon A-Fair Festival in Ravenna, Ohio

On this week’s episode, we’ll be sharing with you a bit of history on hot-air ballooning from the early pioneers from colonial times such as Pilatre De Rozier to Joseph and Etienne Montgolfier, and Jean Pierre Blanchard. From there we’ll introduce you to the father of the modern hot air balloon, Ed Yost and how his invention changed the course of history. And speaking of history makers, we’ll also tell you about Richard Branson and Per Lindstrand and their astonishing accomplishments in hot air ballooning.

Lastly, we’ll wrap things up by taking you along with us to Ravenna, Ohio to the 2022 Ravenna Balloon a-Fair at the Sunbeau Valley Farm. This is a fun event where you’ll get to see some balloons up close and in flight.

So, let’s get this show up-up-and-away – right here on History and Relics.
