Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: City of Lakeway TX - Lakeway City Park - Halloween Goblin Glow

City of Lakeway TX - Lakeway City Park - Halloween Goblin Glow

The City of Lakeway TX had their annual Halloween Goblin Glow last night at the Lakeway City Park on Hurst Creek.

This was our first time to go, so I didn't know what to expect.  There were five hot air balloons and every so often, they would light their fire and make the balloons glow.  You could go right up to the baskets of the balloons and trick-or-treat. They gave out lots of candy.

There was also face painting, hair spraying with colors, people on stilts, and a balloon artist.  Alyssa got her hair sprayed Orange to go with her LongHorn Cheerleader outfit.

And, of course, you can't forget the Live Music.  There was a great band, whose name has slipped my mind, but there was lots of dancing from the little ones.

Here are some pictures I took of the Goblin Glow balloons lighting up.

Great looking glows there Donna, and with the photos I love the transition from daytime to dusk. Any you can't but love the adorable UT cheerleader <Big Smile>.

A hot air balloon glow is a beautiful thing to see.

Good luck and success.

Gary, And I forgot my camera, but the phone camera didn't do too bad of a job.  I picked up that cheerleader at the mall! :)

Lou, Thanks!

Donna, I love this event (even though I've never been).  What fun - tricks or treats to hot air balloons.  Little Alyssa must have had a blast.  Great photos - from your phone?  Nice!

I love your balloon glow photos, Donna. They are gorgeous! Can't believe you took them with your phone! I missed our local balloon event this year :(

Hi Donna... there is just something magical about hot air balloons!  Great pics!

Alyssa looks adorable!  I love the balloon shots.  Sounds like it was a nice event.

Is that your daughter?  She is adorable.  And those photos are amazing.  Unfortunate timing given the debacle of this week.

What a cool event!  Where are those orange sprayed hair photos?  I'd love to see that!

Kathryn, She definitely had a blast and has figured out what "candy" is.

Debi, I know, not bad pics from the phone.

Steve, Not like the Plano balloon festival at all, but decent enough.

Debra, Thanks and it was!

Jane, Yes, that's my daughter!

Kathleen, The back of her hair, so you can't see it.  I do have pics of her hair being purple, green, and blue from her school party on Thursday! It's easier to see in full size.

Donna, Get ready next year Alyssa will want orange hair AND a ride in the ballon!

A balloon glow is awesome.  They did them in DFW in Mesquite and Plano. 

If you ever get the chance, go up in one.

I took my wife up in a balloon for a champaign breakfast for our 5th anniversary.  Normally, folks go out for a night on the town.  But for early morning?  Sadly, I had to give away the surprise because I couldn't come up with a plausible excuse to convince her to get up at 4:00 AM so we could be at the launch site at 6:00.
