Photos: Hot Air Balloons In Bratt On New Year’s Day

January 2, 2023

A group of hot air balloon enthusiasts gathered in Atmore over the New Year’s weekend, and Sunday morning many drifted across the state line into Florida.

Several of the balloons landed Sunday morning in a field near Highway 99 and Bradberry Road in Bratt,  just south of the Florida-Alabama state line.

    If they do this again I wished they would let everyone know. I would have liked to have seen them.

    WOW!! I wish I could have seen this. That one particular picture of the balloon floating over the cotton field is outstanding. Thanks for the pictures.
