Have you ever wanted to see Berne from high in the sky? Now is your opportunity to do so… in a colorful balloon!! The balloon basket even features a clear door so that littles can safely peak out and see their hometown below and enjoy a ride. The ride costs $15 per person and are operated by Midwest Balloon Rides. Thank you Adams Memorial Hospital for sponsoring this newest, and maybe the most exciting, addition to Swiss Days!
