St. Louis, MO (KTRS) The 45th Annual Great Forest Park Balloon Race and Balloon Glow is being moved to Art Hill in Forest Park this year.
Organizers say the change in venue is due to the renovations to Central Fields in Forest Park. The event is scheduled for September 15-16.
“Forest Park in St. Louis is one of the more interesting and beautiful locations to fly from for a hot air balloon pilot,” says Brian Schettler, Great Forest Park Balloon Race Partner. “The race has taken place on many different fields in the park and we are looking forward to bringing it back to Art Hill.”
“The reflections of the balloon glowing on the Grand Basin will be truly spectacular and the launch from Art Hill, will be a work of art,” says Richard L. Nix, Jr., Great Forest Park Balloon Race Partner. “We are looking forward to announcing our mainstage entertainment and activities for everyone to enjoy.”
The event is scheduled for September 15-16.
