Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Kentucky Exposition Center was all aglow Friday, and big crowds showed up for the big event. 

The annual Great Balloon Glow ran from 6 to 9 p.m. 

Hot air balloons stay on the ground, but use their burners to light up the night.

More than 50,000 people attend the event annually. 

It's a chance for fans to  talk with the pilots and get up close to the balloons. 

If you missed the event or just want more, keep your eyes on the sky Saturday.

The annual Great Balloon Race launches at 7 a.m. from Bowman Field.
