Those hot air balloons will be in Piedmont Park and available for rides next week. The Atlanta Balloon Glow begins Thursday, August 1, and runs through Sunday, August 4.
Admission to the event is free, but rides must be purchased in advance through Eventbrite. Even if you don't get to be in the baskets you can enjoy the spectacle of glowing balloons in the meadow and the sky. There will also be food, crafts and activities for the entire family.
