St. Louis has many traditions, but few are as beautiful as the annual Balloon Glow in Forest Park.
The event takes place the day before The Great Forest Park Balloon Race
and it gives St. Louisans a chance to see the impressive hot air balloons up close.
Families arrive early with snacks and hang out until sunset when the balloons come to life. It's a gorgeous selfie-worthy scene followed by fireworks that light up the night sky.
