Panguitch Offers Historic Quilt Walk Festival, Balloon Festival

The community of Panguitch, located in southern Utah near Bryce Canyon, will host some fun events during the next few weeks. Visitors are always invited to join the activities, which are outlined below.

Facing starvation, early settlers in the Panguitch area sent men over the mountain to Parowan to obtain flour. Deep snow made the trek all but impossible. They were about to give up when they discovered blankets spread over the snow helped support their weight and made progress possible. Spreading quilts before them, the men completed the journey and saved their families. See the video below.

Day rides to Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Grand Canyon National Parks, plus Grand Staircase-Escalante and Cedar Breaks National Monuments... Activities include guided GS ride (all abilities), poker run, bike-n-hike, tech sessions and door prizes. Registration includes 3 nights camping, dinner on Saturday night, coffee each morning, plus the activities listed above.

What do bikes and balloons have in common? Both represent freedom; freedom of the road and freedom of the air. Every June, Panguitch, Utah, has a double event, the Panguitch Valley Balloon Rally and The Sky’s the Limit Rally for bikes and cars

"Have you ever wanted to fly in a hot air balloon? Come out to the launch field every morning at 6:30 a.m. and help pilots launch their hot air balloons and you just might be asked to go or a ride! Visit Panguitch’s Historic Downtown on Saturday evening at dusk and witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of balloons glowing up and down Main and Center Streets. Get there early and help pilots inflate their balloons!" See the video below.
