U.S. Bank Derby Festival Great Balloon Glow Lights up night sky at the Kentucky Exposition Center | Events
From Kentucky Exposition Center
LOUISVILLE, KY – More than 30 balloons will light up the night sky, Friday, April 26 at 9 p.m. for the U.S. Bank Derby Festival Great Balloon Glow. Held at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the 20th annual event draws more than 50,000 fans and is one of five events comprising the U.S. Bank Great BalloonFest.
The balloons will inflate in parking lots C and D, but do not ascend. The pilots fire their burners and the colorful balloons will glow in synchronization to a special musical score. Visitors can talk to the pilots and get close to the giant hot-air balloons.
“Even if you plan on coming to the race, you don’t want to miss the unique beauty of the glow,” said Balloon Glow Chair Louis Waterman.
The event is free with a 2013 Pegasus Pin. Parking at the Kentucky Exposition is $8 per vehicle. For more information visit http://kdf.org/.
