The community is invited to attend the Wildwood Business Association Summer Balloon Glow slated for Saturday, July 22, from 6-9 p.m. at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood, 2645 Generations Drive.

This family-friendly festival features five hot air balloons, live entertainment, food and beverage vendors, activities for kids and more. All proceeds benefit the Wildwood Family YMCA.

The balloons, which are sponsored in part by Re/Max One, US Inspect, Cherry Hills Family Eye Care and Endeavor Capital Mortgage, will start rising as dusk begins to fall. The view is not to be missed, with five four-story hot air balloons glowing in the night.

Prior to the main attraction, the bluegrass band Missouri Rounders will perform. The Bubble Bus also will be on campus, entertaining kids with a sea of bubbles. West Newsmagazine, which also is an event sponsor, will offer a "mystery cash" giveaway.

A variety of business owners also will have booths at the event to showcase their products and services.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Food and beverage sponsors include Callier's Catering, Letty Lou’s Café, Nothing Bunt Cakes, Wildwood Pub & Grill, Doughboy's Wood Fired Pizza, Wayno's Mobile International Cuisine and WingNut. Letty Lou’s Café and Wildwood Pub & Grill also will have alcoholic beverages for sale, including signature cocktails, beer and craft brews.

Paid parking is available at STLCC-Wildwood and the Wildwood Family YMCA. The cost is $10 per vehicle. The parking lots will open at 5:30 p.m. Handicap parking is available at STLCC-Wildwood. Guests should consider carpooling as a limited number of parking spaces are available for this event.
