If you’re accustomed to seeing balloons fly in Western New York around Labor Day it might have come to an end.
The Dansville Festival of Balloons is an annual tradition that draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area.
The five-member organizing board said in a Facebook post that due to lack of volunteerism, the festival has been canceled for 2023.
They also attributed the current ‘financial environment’ to the decision.
Dansville Festival of Balloons, LTD has served the community for 41 years.
It’s unclear if another organization will step in to save it.
