Alturas BalloonFest
& Migratory Bird Festival

Northern California’s forgotten northeast corner, very rural Modoc County holds the annual Alturas Hot Air Balloon Festival. Migrating birds are also part of the celebration. Colorful hot air balloons lift off from Sharp’s Field at the end of East 4th Street, and they fill the early morning skies around Alturas with a breathtaking aerial splendor.
