It's was quite a spectacle near UK's Commonwealth Stadium, Friday night.
Fifteen hot air balloons covered the grounds at the E.S. Good Barn Field. It was all for the annual "Balloon Glow Field Party." It's part of the "Little Kentucky Derby" which is a student-organized event put on this week by the University of Kentucky.
The balloons didn't fly tonight, but they did put on a show.
The little kentucky derby tradition began in the 1950s, continuing until the '80s when it was cut due to budgetary reasons. It came back in 2006, with a balance of new and time-honored traditions; including the Balloon Glow.
