Balloons light up the nighttime sky (top left), including the Limoneira balloon, during the Balloon Glow Friday evening. Visitors were able to walk right up to the balloons and in some cases assist the pilots while they inflated the balloons. Several specialty balloons were on hand for the enjoyment of the large crowd including the very large witch balloon (top right).The Strawberry and Panda balloons (bottom left) were a big hit with the audience. Everytime the balloons were lit you could hear cheers from the crowd.(Bottom right) This balloon is being inflated with hot air during the Balloon Glow Friday evening.
