The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival is excited to announce a new location of the iconic Balloon Glow at The Cedar Rapids Country Club!
Watch the sun go down on The Cedar Rapids Country Club's beautiful grounds, listening to the tunes and enjoying time with friends and family. The balloons will enter just before dusk on trailers, the balloonists will then raise them up to glow - balloons typically do not take off at this event. The purpose is to enjoy the "glow" and, once it is safe, the caution tape is removed and patrons are able to get up close and personal with these amazing balloons and the balloonists as well!
Our performer this year is Alisabeth Von Presley.
Rain date is Thursday, June 27, 2019.
