Bluff Balloon Festival

Hot Air Balloon Festival, Bluff, Utah, Southern Utah, San Juan County, FamilyBluff, Utah, the little town with the great can-do attitude is hosting the Annual Bluff International Balloon Festival on January 13-16, 2011. It started with one balloon and oodles of volunteers. We still have the volunteers, a tremendously supportive business community, and the nicest, most experienced group of balloonists imaginable.

Why do they return year after year? Simple. Bluff provides some of the most beautiful, unencumbered red rock flying in the Southwest. The big, colorful balloons are flown by a big, colorful cast of characters with hearts as large as their flying orbs.

Watch as their colorful balloons kiss the red rock bluffs! Fun lovers of all ages will enjoy this very friendly event!

OPA!! Welcome to the Greek Festival. Here you will witness a variety of traditional Greek folk dances performed by our dance groups. The suite of dances will consist of Pan-Hellenic dances (danced throughout Greece with regional variances) and dances from the mainland and islands.

The most popular form of the Greek folk dance is the open circle, with regular handhold position, moving counter-clockwise. Next is the straight line with arms on shoulders of adjacent dancers. The third form is the curved-line dance with the basket-weave hold.
