This is an event coming to Lufkin that is sure to lift your spirits in more than one way. The Lufkin Glow Show is coming to Kit McConnico Park Saturday August 7th from 5-9:30pm. This is going to be a huge first for Lufkin.

Beautiful glowing hot air balloons will illumine the sky that night. You won't want to miss out on this event.

“This is a magical outdoor event that’s great for families, and it’s something we haven’t seen in Lufkin before,” said Taylor Commiato, Lufkin Convention & Visitors Bureau director. “The hot-air balloon pilots inflate their balloons but keep them tethered to the ground. The burners they use to inflate the balloons create a bright light inside, making these giant balloons glow against the night sky. It’s quite a sight.”

It will not only look beautiful, but a select few will get to enjoy tethered balloon rides. They are also planning to have lots to do while we are staring at the glowing balloons.  Live music, children's actives, food vendors, and more.

Tickets will be $30 per car, with a limit of 6 persons per vehicle, and must be purchased in advance. You can get your tickets now to guarantee your spot. I have a feeling this first time ever event is going to be a big hit for the Lufkin Convention & Visitors Bureau. For details you can give them a call at 936-633-0349. You can also get a vendor application at 

Visit Lufkin would like to thank their sponsors for making this possible. The Presenting sponsor is Badders Law Firm, and Pilgrims and Commercial Bank Of Texas are Hot Air Balloon Sponsors.
