Festival on hold but no putting out the GLOW

Judging by the long line of traffic going into Mountain Meadows Recreation Complex in Lakeside on Saturday evening, June 27, the Balloon Glow was a huge success. Almost like Christmas lights flashing on and off, the glow of the balloons lit up the sky and soothed parched souls who were happy to get get out of the house in a safe social distancing way for something good. The Third Annual White Mountains Balloon Festival may have been postponed until 2021 but at least having the GLOW this year was a welcomed plus for the White Mountain Community.
