While we don't want to speed through the Christmas holidays, there is a pretty cool event to put on your calendar for January.

The Balloon Glow & Laser Show is heading to the NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana on January 19th & 20th, 2024.

The event will feature incredible hot air balloons, a kids' zone with games and rides, live music, craft and retail booths, and much more.

Of course, the grand finale each night after dusk will be the fantastic Hot Air Balloon Glow & Laser Show where the balloons will be lit up in unison with crowd-participatory "countdowns."

The show incorporates music and visually stunning coordinated burns by the Hot Air Balloons & Lasers which creates a "glow."

The Kids Zone will feature games and rides including trains, bounce houses, and much more.

Another highlight of the event will include tethered hot air balloon rides. Those will be available for purchase during the event for $25 per person. (While supplies last and weather dependent.)

When you attend, you are invited to bring your blankets, chairs, and umbrellas and set up your own perfect viewing spot.
