Entertain Glasgow, a local volunteer group, and T.J. Regional Health are excited to announce the first ever hot air balloon festival to take place in Glasgow. The Groove & Glow Fest will be held on Saturday, September 21 at the Glasgow Municipal Airport – Moore Field.
The family event will kick off at 4 p.m. beginning with numerous kids’ activities, food vendors, and an array of hot air balloons. There will be balloons to admire, as well as tethered rides for attendees, and a balloon glow at dusk. The evening will end with live music by a headlining band that will be announced in August.
The title sponsor for the event is T.J. Regional Health, which celebrates its 90th birthday in September.
Admission to the event is free, but donations of nonperishable food items will be accepted. All items donated will be used to replenish the “To The Brim” food bank as they prepare for the upcoming holiday season.
