A kaleidoscope of colors will fill the sky as tethered hot air balloons illuminate Brucemore’s First Avenue lawn. Bring the kids but leave your pets and sparklers at home for this Freedom Festival signature event. Alisabeth Von Presley will light up the stage and get all ages in the groove. Bring blankets, chairs, picnics and beverages or buy food and drink, including wine, from vendors. No parking is allowed on the grounds; shuttles will run from Washington High School and the Rockwell Collins lot on 35th Street NE.

Balloon Glow

6 to 10 p.m. Tuesday (6/19), Brucemore’s First Avenue Lawn, Cedar Rapids; free with $5 Freedom Festival button, available at the gate (not required for ages 8 and under); Freedomfestival.com/events/balloon-glow/3/
