Events: Balloon Glow

By Marika Lee · June 29th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

Looking for more than fireworks this Fourth of July weekend? How about hot air balloons? Coney Island will host the 12th-annual LaRosa's Balloon Glow. As many as 15 hot air balloons will illuminate the sky, glowing in every color of the rainbow. The Balloon Glow starts at 8 p.m., but the fun starts long before. Beginning at 6 p.m. there will be stilt walkers, jugglers and performances by University of Cincinnati Bearcat Band Jazz Ensemble and the Anderson Township Symphony Orchestra.

Q102 FM will be broadcasting live from 5-8 p.m. at the Python Coaster. And, because it's the Fourth of July, Rozzi's Famous Fireworks will be set off over the banks of Lake Como at 10 p.m. Admission to the event is free, but $10 will be charged for parking. The Sunlite Pool will be open until 9:30 p.m. and the rides will be open until 11 p.m.; normal rates apply for both. The pool area will stay open for firework viewing.
