NASA may have put a man on the moon, but pizza will light up the sky. The 15th annual LaRosa’s Balloon Glow offers more than just hot air. As one of Coney Island’s most popular events, every Cincinnatian should see these aircraft marvels once in their Queen City tenure. Glowing, tethered hot air balloons will light up the Moonlite Mall at 8 p.m., followed by a Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks show at 10 p.m. (so hopefully the balloons are out of the air by then). Experience all the grandeur of Coney’s classic rides with admission, including the famous Sunlite pool, which will be open and ready to refresh until 9:30 p.m. Live entertainment will start at 5 p.m. 


5-11 p.m. Thursday. Free; $8 parking until 2 p.m.; $10 parking after 2 p.m. Coney Island, 6201 Kellogg Ave, California, coneyislandpark.com.
