Balloon Glow

One of my Top 5 events in St Louis is the balloon glow in Forest Park

We started with a picnic, while the balloons were getting all rolled out

Then they started going up right on top of us! We had to move a few times to get out of the way! haha

Tomorrow will be the actual race. The energizer bunny takes off first, and then the rest follow

We also got a few pictures of the gang

Me and Andrew

My sister in law and nephew

My mom and dad

This was my favorite balloon last year

I also made a video to show you what it was all about.  Once all the balloons blow up, there is a horn that goes off every 5 minutes of so, and all the balloons light up! Its really cool. And the kids love it (well the grown ups too!)

There were so many people and some of the balloons (which are attached to their vehicles) did have problems staying on the ground.

One actually broke away from the van, and started taking off. So a bunch of people grabbed on to keep it to the ground

One of them, would be my dad (he is in the white haha)

But I think this is my favorite picture of the night

Question for you:

Do you have anything like this where you live?

What is one of your favorite things to do where you live?

  1. So cool!
    There is the Atlantic City Air Show here. Planes and stuff. Very cool. Best part? I work at a research facility at the airport and all employees are invited to go see the planes that are waiting to fly out, up close and personal! I saw some pretty cool ones last year but wasn’t at the base this year the day of the air show 😦
