Thousands of people are expected to stroll along 16 blocks of closed streets in Historic Downtown Glendale, watch 20 tethered hot-air balloons gently expand as pilots fire them up, and enjoy 11 different bands performing rock, blues, country and pop music.
This year’s “After Glow” concert will feature the California-based tribute band Journey Unauthorized performing from 9:30-11 p.m.
New this year will be a LEGO event in which kids can participate in onsite brick-building, with LEGO-building contests every half hour. LEGO aficionados can show off their skills, but get here early; the LEGO contests are on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign-ups start at 4 p.m. at 57th Drive, between Glenn Drive and Glendale Avenue.
Event attendees will have the option of paying for preferred parking in the two downtown garages, located at City Hall and the Bank of America building, both accessible from 59th Avenue and Glenn Drive. The preferred parking fee is $10. For those who prefer the free parking option, shuttles run all evening long, and pick up from the northeast parking lots of Glendale Community College, located off of 59th Avenue, north of Olive Avenue.
