Grayslake Color Aloft Balloon Festival

Balloon FestivalKeep your eyes on the skies as the 6th annual Grayslake Color Aloft Balloon Festival takes flight on August 25th.  This exciting event, sponsored by Churchill, Quinn, Richtman & Hamilton, will feature hot air balloons being inflated and competing to see which one can land closest to the Fox River.  Once retrieved and returned to the park, the balloons will be illuminated by their burners in a captivating glow that you don’t want to miss.

Along with the beautiful balloons, you can enjoy musical entertainment, a Civil War era baseball game, children’s activities, storytelling and business booths.  There will not be any food vendors, so be sure to pack a snack!

This free event runs from 3:00pm until 9:00pm at Central Park in Grayslake, located at 250 Library Lane.
