The Great Balloon Glow
May 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sunday at 6 PM FREE
National WWI Museum and Memorial- 2 Memorial Dr
Kick off your summer with the first ever Hot Air Balloon Glow on the North and Southeast Lawns. Balloons—also called dirigibles or air ships—were primarily used in WWI to collect reconnaissance miles above the front lines. A century later, the Museum and Memorial, in partnership with Cumulus Radio, invites the public to observe the magnificence of hot air balloons during an evening “balloon glow.” Hot air balloons will be grounded, and propane burners will be periodically lit to keep the balloons inflated.
