New Haven has several main events throughout the year. Balloon races, Missouri's only Short Film Festival, Firefest, chamber events, business specials and social gatherings, there is always something going on.
This weekend-long event sponsors a balloon glow that offers a breathtaking view of lit balloons the evening before the race. Race day hosts over 20 balloons in pursuit of the "hare". The Pepsi-Cola New Haven Balloon festival has been a stable for over 25 years.
