Atlanta Balloon Glow event is kicking off on Thursday, August 1 in Piedmont Park, and I for one don’t want to miss it!
Let’s try and beat the weekend crowd, and meet as a group on Thursday evening at 6:00PM at Lake Clara Meer.
I recommend bringing your widest aperture, or best low-light prime lens(es), and something wide enough to take in the whole scene. A tripod is recommended for long exposures, and for after the sky gets dark.
• The balloon glow (about 10 balloons), will begin around 7pm (weather permitting), and glow for approx one hour.
• Ballon rides will run from 5:00 – 9:00 (weather permitting), so lots of photo ops all evening
• Blankets and lawn chairs are permitted, but coolers are NOT
• NO PARKING is available at Piedmont Park for this event, according to the event’s information(!) Don’t risk being towed or ticketed, and park only in a paid/secure lot nearby, or please use public transportation, Lyft/Uber, bike/scooter/walk, etc. Nearest MARTA station is MIDTOWN, about 1 mile walking distance to Lake Clara Meer.
Expect the area to be pretty crowded, so please WEAR YOUR T-SHIRT if you have one! If you don’t have one already, limited sizes are available online at:
T-shirt sales support the member fees, planning and organization of this group 🙂
