Balloon Glow at Coney Island Amusement Park

The LaRosa’s Balloon Glow at Coney Island Amusement Park in Cincinnati is a great family-friendly event.

This free event on July 3rd allows you to get up close to hot air balloons and ends with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks.

During the event, you can walk around and talk to the hot air balloon operators and observe how the hot air balloons are set up.  The balloons are even more beautiful at night.

The only cost is parking. Food and drink concessions will be available for purchase during the event. No outside coolers allowed.

I would suggest bringing a chair or a blanket to sit on if you plan on being there a long time.
