Live entertainment, children's activities and balloon glows

Families can learn about hot air balloons and ride in tethered balloons at Grove City's annual Balloons & Tunes festival.

The free event includes live entertainment, children's activities and balloon glows, where balloons inflate at night to create a breathtaking glow. Balloons also will launch if the weather permits. Parking costs $5.

Balloons & Tunes takes place from 5 to 9:30 p.m. both Friday, Aug. 23 and Saturday, Aug. 24 at Beulah Park in Grove City.
