    Sandy Fork Hunt Club–Directions from Clarksville…take Hwy. 58 West, drive .2 mile beyond the town limits sign, turn left onto Greenhouse Drive (#815). Hunt Club is .6 mile ahead on the left.

    Pilots meet there at 6 am and 6 pm each day…the miester does a thorough weather check prior to each scheduled flight. For safety of all apilots, flights occur with select weather conditions. Should there be storms in a 60 mile radius, or winds locally greater than 10 MPH–flights must be cancelled.

    For best viewing on Saturday morning–DOWNTOWN Clarksville. The balloons fly over Virginia Avenue at @ 9 am…preceeding down Virginia Avenue and then, advance toward the lake–their favorite thing is to “dip” the botttom of their basket in the lake. Once they have dipped–the balloon rises above the bank on the other side and proceeds on the flight across Lake Country.

    There are 11 hot-air balloons scheduled for 2011 Lakefest. Rides (tethered) are available for children, ages 12 years and younger on Thursday evening, July 15, 6 pm until dusk at the Lake Country Business Park located on Noblin Farm Road. Rides are not available for adults. This is due to the outrageous cost of liability insurance, should a pilot charge for a ride. We greatly appreciate your understanding and hope that you will enjoy the beautiful sight of the flights the balloons bring to Lakefest #34!
