No tickets will be sold at the gate.
Glowing, colorful hot-air balloons will light up the evening sky during Lufkin’s Glow Show, from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, August 7 in Kit McConnico Park.
“This is a magical outdoor event that’s great for families, and it’s something we haven’t seen in Lufkin before,” said Taylor Commiato, Lufkin Convention & Visitors Bureau director. “The hot-air balloon pilots inflate their balloons but keep them tethered to the ground. The burners they use to inflate the balloons create a bright light inside, making these giant balloons glow against the night sky. It’s quite a sight.”
In addition to the balloon glow, there will also be tethered balloon rides, live music, children’s activities, food and vendors. Vendor applications are available on the Lufkin Glow Show page at VisitLufkin.com.
Tickets are $30 per car, with up to six people per car. Tickets must be purchased in advance online at VisitLufkin.com or at the Lufkin Convention and Visitors Bureau, 601 N. Second St. There is no fee for parking at Kit McConnico Park. Attendees can bring chairs and blankets.
Tethered Balloon rides will be CASH ONLY at the event. They are $20/person. No age restrictions, but children under the age of 12 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
