Blue Moon serving drinks at The Great Forest Park Balloon Race

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-The Great Forest Park Balloon Race will be serving up spectacular sights and savory drinks this weekend, September 16th and 17th. Sponsors Blue Moon will be taking the field tomorrow starting at 3 p.m.  to hand out samples for all those attending the race. For many St. Louis natives, Great Forest Park Balloon Race marks the true start of the fall season.

Blue Moon will stay with the fall trend by inviting attendees to sample their pumpkin beer in addition to their classic brews.

The oldest and most-attended free hot-air balloon event in the world, the Great Forest Park Balloon Race kicks off its fall festivities tonight, September 16th, with the spectacular Balloon Glow. Starting at 7 p.m. on Forest Park’s Central Fields, hot-air balloons will light up St. Louis before ending the night with a fireworks show.

Samantha Fischer with the Great Forest Park Balloon Race met with Kim Hudson to discuss the details for tonight and tomorrow’s events.
