The Great Forest Park Balloon Race takes place in St. Louis every September. The night before the big race is the Balloon Glow. The balloons assemble on one of the fields, inflate, and then light up the night sky. It’s really neat to watch.
This year I took the kids and it was fine at first, but my little one was really freaked out by the burners and all the fire so we had to leave before all the balloons inflated. I did get a few photos from the evening. I hope that he’ll be willing to go next year.
