It seems kind of redundant to suggest that an event featuring hot air will take place in South Louisiana during the month of August but this is a little different. The "hot air" will be encapsulated inside the fabric of large hot air balloons and organizers of the event in Carencro hope it will be an amazing spectacle.

The Glow in the' Cro is planned for August 30th and 31st at Pelican Park. The event will feature up to 20 hot air balloons, live music, arts and crafts vendors, and carnival rides. Plus you can arrange to take a tethered ride in a hot air balloon as well. Each evening will also feature a hot air balloon glow at 7:30 pm.

The musical line up for the event includes Dustin Sonnier and the Wanted, Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin' Cajuns, Greg Martinez and the Delta Kings, plus Clay Cormier and the Highway Boys.

Organizers are still seeking sponsors and food vendors for the event. If you'd be interested in joining the party dial (337) 896-5000.
