Here are a few selected photos from the Hot Air Balloon Glow. The event was sponsored by Make A Wish Foundation with all proceeds ($5 per car donation) go towards the funding to help grant wishes to area children with life-threatening medical conditions. It was a bit cool but comfortable evening. There was a long line of cars at the entrance into the park and all the parking spaces were taken that we had to park deep inside the park, then took the shuttle bus to where the balloons were displayed. We brought a flashlight but it was safer not to walk in the dark from where the designated parking lot. There were live music and a few food vendors. Again, I thought of my nephew and wish I was able to share with JL this experience. I knew JL would enjoy the balloon glow, especially when the pilot reheated the balloon by firing the burner, thus making the balloon glow so beautifully. My favorite was the popcorn balloon, I am sure it would be JL's choice too.
