Produced by Cincinnati Parks, Balluminaria is one of the largest hot-air balloon festivals in the country, with nearly a dozen full-size hot-air balloons are secured around Mirror Lake in Eden Park. As dusk falls, the flames that heat the air in the balloons cause them to glow bright – having a beautiful effect that is reflected in the water. This year’s event will take place on Saturday November 17th, from 4PM to 6PM and is FREE to the public!
