I hope to see you Tonight for Balloon Glow!

Be very cautious driving anywhere near Brucemore tonight, including travel down 1st Ave this afternoon.  There’ll be plenty of excited little kiddos all around the area, let alone heavy traffic.  Might want to just avoid the area as best as possible, and take whatever alternate routes you can.  Gates open at 5:30, and crowds will begin showing up long before that.

Did you know you can park at Washington High School and take the shuttle?  Shuttles run from 5:30pm to 10:30pm.  Here’s the route:

A) Parking at Washington High School
B) Shuttle drop-off and pick-up at the Linden Ave gate
C) Shuttle drop-off and pick-up at the 1st Ave gate
D) Parking at Washington High School

You can bring blankets, folding chairs, and even soft sided coolers with food and drink. (Don’t forget the bug spray too!)  There will be food vendors on site as well. Pets are NOT allowed for safety reasons.

The event is free with your Freedom Fest button. If you don’t have yours, no worries as they’ll be available for purchase at all entrances.  Kids 8 and under don’t need one however.

There will be a band starting up at 7pm.  They are a local group named “Airwaves.”
