Hot Air Balloon Glow and Launch
Saturday evening and Sunday morning, enjoy glowing balloons at Hannibal LaGrange University!
Food booths open at 6 PM on Saturday evening then enjoy the balloon launch at 6:45 PM, followed by the “balloon glow” at 8:15 PM as the balloons are lit up on the ground after dark. Tethered balloon rides are available at 6:30 PM. Balloon glows make magical photo opportunities! The whole family will enjoy seeing these balloons lit up against the dark night sky.
Watch the skies on Sunday morning at 6:30 AM for the sunrise hot air balloon launch!
This year marks the 200th anniversary of Hannibal and the 125th anniversary of Mark Twain’s book, “Tom Sawyer Abroad,” where Tom, Huck, and Jim had quite an adventure in a hot air balloon that took them all the way to the Holy Land!
