Freedom Fest has begun.  The weather is beautiful.  And it's a great night for the annual Balloon Glow on the Brucemore lawn.  No doubt, it's one of the most popular events, and it's already looking like this might be the biggest year yet.

The band, 8 Seconds, sounds great.  The crowd is all smiles and loving every moment. There's plenty of fun for the kids while we wait for the balloons too, like bounce houses, face painting, and balloons.  Plus, there's plenty of food options.  Check out the photos of this fantastic night.  Did we spot you among the thousands?
