Great Mississippi River Balloon Race

Image of Hot Air Balloons in flightIt finally feels like Fall, and it’s once again time for the Great Mississippi River Balloon Race in Natchez, Ms.  32nd Annual to be exact. October 20,21,22.  Tourist come from all over the world, Bed and Breakfast and Hotels are booked up, and the festival is loved by all.  For a list of events,music lineup, ticket prices, and times, go to 

We are once again sponsoring a balloon and part of the pilot’s crew and it is really a lot of fun.  There will also be an arts and crafts exhibit near the festival grounds in addition to the live music, rides for the kids, and balloon flights. (weather permitting)

If you haven’t gotten your place to stay yet, you may have a problem finding a room at this late of a date.  But here’s  tip, keep checking.  Some guests make their reservations 6 months or more in advance.  But then, life happens, and they have to cancel.  So my advice would be to get on every waiting list you can. The Natchez Bed and Breakfast Association has a network of B and B’s and we help each other fill our rooms.   

When you book, please be aware of the cancellation policy of that lodging property.  Most are 2 or 3 night minimums for that weekend, take a partial or full, non refundable deposit. Cancellation policies vary from property to property and are at the owner’s discretion.  

At this time, we are full.  We haven’t been able to accommodate guests the last few years, because we are full with out of town family.  We love having guests but we also love when the family comes.  Especially the grandchildren.  🙂

This month is International B & B month.  Bed and Breakfasts are the way to stay.  

Also, coming up in October in Natchez, is Music at  the Mounds, October 28 and 29, 2017 at the Grand Village of the Natchez Indians.  Music at the Mounds  2017 on Facebook for information.  

And, our good friend, Paul Sanchez, singer-songwriter from New Orleans, original member of Cowboy Mouth,  will be coming to Natchez, Ms.  on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 and playing at Rolling River Bistro.  His new CD, Life is a Ride is awesome.  Check out his website for Bio and Music.
