 11th Annual Hot Air Balloon Glow

11th Annual Hot Air Balloon Glow

Children’s Smile Center is hosting the 11th Annual Hot Air Balloon Glow on Friday, June 23, 2017. Hot Air Balloons will inflate and glow at Finley River Park in conjunction with CCCC Sertoma Duck Race!

The Hot Air Balloons are tethered to the ground so all attendees can get close to the balloons, get in the baskets and help keep them inflated! This is a nighttime Hot Air Balloon Glow, therefore the balloons will not be launching into the air on Friday night. 
The Glow is weather dependent. If there are high wind speeds or rain in the area, then it is possible the event would be cancelled. This decision will be made a couple hours prior to the scheduled event. Updates will be given on this event page.

Check out 4csertoma.com for more details on all the activities going on all weekend! Besides the Balloon Glow there will be Live Music, Car Show, KidsZone with Inflatables and Rides, 5K Race, Rubber Duck Race on the Finley, Rodeo, Fireworks, and lots of great food vendors and craft booths to visit. There are costs associated with many of these activities, including a $5 per car parking fee.
