The night before the Great Balloon Race (http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com ) is Balloon Glow (Friday nite - last nite). The balloons are all setup close together and as the sun goes down, every few minutes a horn would sound and all the balloons would open up their "burners" and would light up the entire balloon at the same time.
.
.
This event takes place in Forest Park (http://stlouis.missouri.org/citygov/parks/forestpark ) which is in the center of St Louis and is 40% bigger than Central Park in New York City.

Unfortunately it is a while away with all the disruptions I have had (and to come - Air Italia is a dirty word around me !)

But two mornings of 30 plus balloons raising out of the valley below was quite impressive !

it is an amazing sight - even though it's man's earliest type of manned flight

we usually have between 70--90 balloons that almost blanket the sky...... but they are released at staggered time so it is an ongoing enjoyment
