Come to Kanab for the annual Balloons & Tunes Roundup. See bright, beautiful hot air balloons in the red rock Vermilion Cliffs located near the scenic Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The balloons will launch 3 mornings (weather permitting) and bands will compete for the title of Battle of the Bands Friday and Saturday. Come to the Street Fair located on Main street and buy some food and one-of-a-kind crafts from area vendors. There will be a S'mores School by Chef Shon, the Balloon Glow and a Wishing Lantern Launch on Center Street in Kanab on Saturday night at 7pm. You'll want to stay the whole weekend, so book a room today. LODGING IN KANAB
