Great Forest Park Balloon Race 

When: Sat., Sept. 16, 12 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission
Saturday marks the 45th anniversary of the Great Forest Park Balloon Race, which has grown a great deal since its first year, when perhaps a dozen people showed up to watch six balloons take off. There are many more balloons this year, and incredible numbers of spectators — the park will be packed. Festivities start at noon with performances by the Muny Kids and Ignite Theatre Company. Activities for the kids include inflatables, games and mural painting, which should keep them occupied until balloons launch from the base of Art Hill at 4:45 p.m. As always, admission is free.
