Duluth Air Show staff announced Friday morning that Bayfront Park will host "Le Festival des Montgolfières à Duluth," or the Duluth Balloon Festival, in September.

The festival will be free and open to the public. City, state and community leaders will present more information about the new event at a press conference Friday afternoon.
