ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - It was the winds, not the rain, that kept the Forest Park Balloon Glow grounded Friday night, leaving thousands of people disappointed and event organizers scrambling to entertain the gathered crowds.

In the end, the evening’s show was limited to balloon operators firing up their hot-air burners.

Saturday marks the 43rd Great Forest Park Balloon Race. The hare balloon is schedule to go up at 4:30 p.m., with the ‘hound’ balloons following at 4:45 p.m.
