Update for Saturday (8:30am):It is with a heavy heart that we announce the Great Forest Park Balloon Race is canceled due to extremely wet field conditions. Forest Park received over 3 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. This is the first time in 44 years the event has been canceled due to rain. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to celebrating this great tradition again next year.
Congratulations to First Place Winner: Jim Wolters, Missouri Lottery, 40ft from Hare. 2nd Place: Zach Burgerss, Curves, 132ft from Hare. 3rd Place: Scott Wooge, Purine, 455ft. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped make the 43rd annual event, a great one. See you next year!
