Atlanta Balloon Glow in Piedmont Park is every evening this weekend! While I’m sorry our plan got rained out last night, I do encourage everyone to go another evening this weekend if you can because the balloons are dreamy. I am going to try again tonight (Friday) myself, and I hope to see some of you out there!

Here’s a link to learn more about the Atlanta Balloon Glow Event, and to purchase tickets if you want to ride in a balloon:

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.
