Spend a firelit summer evening with us at Kansas City’s second ever Great Balloon Glow!

Rows of tethered hot air balloons will fire up their burners to create a magnificent, colorful display you have to see to believe.

Beginning at 5 p.m. the public is invited to gather on the Museum and Memorial grounds with friends and family to listen to live music, go on a tethered balloon ride and grab a bite to eat from among 20 local food trucks and picnic.

The Great Balloon Glow, in partnership with Cumulus Radio, will begin around 8:30 p.m. and last for over an hour. Free to the public.

The balloons will be located on the North and Southeast Lawns, and the public will be permitted to gather around them.
