UPDATE: They have made a change to the location of the glow site due to the water saturation on the School Field.
The glow will now be held at: Adams/Mercer Land located at the West end of MacLeod Trail in High River. To drive the best route will be to go west on 12th Avenue to Highwood Trail. Turn right and follow Highwood Trail as far north as you can. Parking is in the residential area and it is the individual’s responsibility to find their own parking location.
Please be prepared to walk a little bit to the glow site.
This is private property, so we still ask for no dogs to be present at glow night!
If we are rained out, we will try to reschedule for Saturday evening. Please watch all the social media sites, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and our Website for updates.
Dress warm, enjoy the food trucks, and walk amongst the balloons!!

Balloon flight is scheduled for 5pm. On site after the flight there will be a walk-in balloon – you can actually walk inside and see how a hot air balloon inflates. As well as food vendors and other activities. The balloons will glow at approximately 8:00 pm for a maximum of one hour. Balloons inflate and light themselves from within using their burners. The sight of hot air balloons lit up like giant light bulbs is amazing. Pilots will coordinate ‘all burns’ where they fire up their burners illuminating their balloons all at once and also perform ‘count downs’ which are very crowd participatory events.
Join us for this fun family event beginning at 5:00 pm on Friday, September 28 at Spitzee Elementary School in High River, Alberta. We can carpool from Calgary, leaving at 4pm to ensure we get to High River in time for the balloons taking off. Protected content though we can change this to suit where attendees are coming from if needed. Expect to be back in Calgary around 10pm. Please contribute a few dollars for gas to your driver if you choose to carpool.
