In August amid the tapping of the kegs, yes, I said kegs, plural. Outside of downtown Jasper, is the Strassenfest Balloon Race. The balloons set up, inflate, and rise into the skies from the field adjacent to the Uebelhor Toyota dealership. on the South side of Jasper. They rise slowly into the air and pass over the Strassenfest activities going on downtown. We were there for the first time to witness their launch.
