Kansas City's Great Balloon Glow

Saturday, Aug. 20 - 5 p.m. National WWI Museum and Memorial

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.
