The Calgary Hot Air Balloon Club put on a show in Sylvan Lake, Dec. 22

 

The Calgary Hot Air Balloon Club made Sylvan Lake a part of its “Night Glow” event. The hot air balloons glowed and lit up the park as they were inflated with hot air from fires. The balloons stood in the park for roughly an hour and a half Saturday evening. Many people from in and around Sylvan Lake came out to get a closer look at the balloons and watch as they light up the otherwise quiet park.
