The night before the Great Balloon Race (http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com ) is Balloon Glow. 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.

I so wish I could have seen this before I left England, the one that should have been on in the next town to us was called off because of bad weather. Now here in Spain as far as I know it just doesn't happen!

A super shot Bill. :-)
