Good Morning Everyone...Frank Here...It was up, up, and away this Saturday in Eden Park. The annual Balluminaria took place around Mirror lake and officials say they had record crowds. Over 4,000 people showed up for the event which many call the official kick off of the holiday season here in Cincinnati. In addition to Santa the little kiddos lined up for the always popular balloon animals. I attended the event with our reporter Corey McConnell and her husband and children. This is such a cool event, you can actually interact with the balloons and there crews, you can get up close and personal and actually feel the heat from the giant flames that keep these large balloons flying high. The real cap off the event is when all the balloons line up in place surrounding mirror lake and for 30 minutes they light there flames in a orchestrated time frame which provides photographers with stunning pictures. If you have not made it to this event in it's 15 year plus run I highly recommend you bring your families next year.
