The Great Forest Park Balloon Race is an annual hot air balloon festival held in Forest Park in St. Louis, Missouri.
Walk through the Balloon Glow at the Forest Park Central Field in the evening to see the spectacular, close-up sight of balloons being inflated. You can also enjoy food and refreshments, and you'll want to stay to watch the fireworks.
The Forest Park Balloon Race kicks off at noon, and a Children's Entertainment area which includes pony rides, games and activities for the younger crowd opens at the same time.
The Balloon Glow offers spectators a breathtaking view of inflated balloons lighted by their burners.
