Friday's Balloon Glow canceled due to wet conditions

The fields were just too soggy.

ST. LOUIS - Friday night’s Balloon Glow in Forest Park has been canceled due to extremely wet field conditions and potential storms.

The event posted on their Facebook page that Saturday’s Balloon Race will still take place at noon and for everyone to stay dry on Friday.



This is the second year in a row that the annual event was canceled due to the weather. Last year’s event was canceled due to high winds and unsafe conditions, but operators were allowed to light the burners that fill the balloons.
