>> BALLOON GLOW -- So what is a balloon glow?
The hot air balloon festival event now known as a balloon glow was invented in Albuquerque in 1979, when local pilots inflated balloons on Christmas Eve night as a thank you to local residents. The sight of balloons lit from within at night like giant holiday ornaments is breathtaking, and glow events are now held all over the world.
Junior Balloonist Camp: Kids ages from 12- 18 will participate in a hands on demonstration of "HOW BALLOONS WORK". Scheduled from 2-3:30PM Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Lead pilot/instructor is Matt Hodgdon from Mt Airy MD. This is a Free Demonstration.
>> OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATIONS:
