October is a great time to visit the area for some beautiful fall foliage and the Poteau Balloon Fest!

During the Balloon Fest, hot air balloon fill the skies using the mountains and surrounding terrain of fall colors as a backdrop for a picture perfect family fun vacation.

With thrilling entertainment and carnival rides, there’s always something for everyone to do and see at the Poteau Balloon Festival!


The Poteau Balloonfest has been named #3 in the Top 40 Things to do in Oklahoma in 2014 by OKIESCENTRIC magazine.
