Warm up by the fire this Saturday as over a dozen hot air balloons set Eden Park ablaze at this year’s Balluminaria Festival! Gather around Mirror Lake and watch the glow from the balloons reflection ignite the water as carolers and other musical entertainment bring the holiday season to your ears. Santa Claus will even be there to take in the sights and pass out candy canes.

If you're feeling inspired, take a gander at the model sail boat demonstration. And, if you’re feeling chilly, grab a cup of hot chocolate and a bag of roasted almonds to keep you warm! Hate dealing with parking? No need to fret. There will be a free shuttle service from The Parking Company of America lot next to the Greyhound Bus Station on Gilbert Avenue.

Balluminaria will take place on Saturday (bad weather date is Sunday) from 4-6 p.m. at Mirror Lake in Eden Park.
