The Great Forest Park Balloon Race (http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com )
.
The night before the Great Balloon Race (http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com ) is Balloon Glow (Friday 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.
.
On the way to the glow there were a lot of different type of vendors selling their race related items. This is photo 1/4 - the long slender balloons that you can blow - often to twist and turn to make animals.
.
.
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.
