The 23rd annual Ashland Balloonfest lifts off Thursday for its four-day flight through the weekend.

The event at Freer Field, off of Park Street behind the former Ashland Children's Home field, includes plenty of hot-air balloons, and a chance to take rides in them.

Spokesperson Misty Miller says 25 balloons are coming in, including one from Albequerque, New Mexico, which she calls a "feather in our cap" with that city being the balloon capital of the world.

Rides are available Thursday and Saturday from 6:30 to 8:30 pm for $10 a person and $40 for a family of four.

Tickets can be purchased at Ballonfest or in advance on the website www.ashlandohioballoonfest.com.

There are numerous other activities too including a Kids' Fun Zone with pony rides, laser tag, Jungle Bob's Exotic Animals, bounce houses, rock climbing walls, and a super jump.

The popular Balloon Glow occurs Friday and Saturday after the sun sets.
