428 views 1 person's favourite photo

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.
Have a great weekend!!!!

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. :-)

I envy you. I am missing the Adirondack Balloon Festival this weekend so I can work on my house.
