August 17-19 The 20th Great Falls Balloon Festival
August 17, 2012
20th Great Falls Balloon Festival-Lewiston-Auburn. During each hot air balloon launch, the Androscoggin Land
Trust will join other paddlers to head out on the Androscoggin River. The group will meet at 5 AM and 5 PM on
Saturday and Sunday and 5 pm Friday at Little Andy Park on 2nd St in Auburn. Coined the
"Great Falls Paddling Society," we hope to see many out there enjoying the unique view of Lewiston-Auburn's
industrial heritage from the river as balloons launch overhead.
Rentals will be available during the event through the newly opened Lewiston Auburn Canoe and Kayak
Rental. You can reserve in advance by calling Bethel Outdoor Adventures at (207) 824-4224 or Darryn Dushane at
The summer paddling series of the ALT is presented by Center Street Dental, with additional sponsorship from the Hilton Garden Inn Auburn Riverwatch, Austin Associates, Northern Insurance Group, and Lewiston Auburn Magazine.
