Kansas City’s Great Balloon Glow // 5.30 // National WWI Museum & Memorial

Kick off your summer with the first ever Hot Air Balloon Glow on the North and Southeast Lawns of the National WWI Museum and Memorial! 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 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.
Beginning at 6 p.m. the public is encouraged to gather safely on the 47 acres with friends and family to listen to live music, grab a bite to eat from a local food truck and picnic.
The Great Air Balloon Glow is a FREE event and will begin around 8:30 p.m. and last for 90 minutes.
