Balloon Glow

Magical….. Lake Powell Blvd will be closed from Vista Ave to South Navajo and balloons will fill the streets. Tied to the earth but yet the large balloons are inflated and “glow” overhead as the pilots and crews visit with the public. This is the chance to get up close and personal with the balloons and enjoy their sheer size and beauty. Visitors wander the streets and the vendor fair will still in full swing. Not to be missed!
