Competitive hot air balloons will once again fill the beautiful Missouri Wine Country skies over New Haven, Mo. at the Annual New Haven Balloon Race. Pilots will lift off from New Haven City Park around 4PM and spread out over the nearby Missouri River countryside, enabling spectators to view the race from the park or the nearby Robller Vineyard winery. Plenty of great food and Pepsi to drink.
New Haven is located on Highway 100, approximately an hour west of St. Louis. The drive leads travelers through the heart of Missouri's wine country and features some of the most beautiful rural scenery in the state, with rolling hills, farms and vineyards around nearly every bend. The fine Robller Vineyard offers an enjoyable wine-tasting experience to visitors on its pavilion, covered deck and terraces.
