stlouis missouri us usa GFPBR hotair balloon glow flame 091908 2008


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.
Have a great weekend!!!!

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
