Cincinnati's Balluminaria is an annual event that kicks off the holiday season in a momentous way. The event coincides with the Holiday Floral show taking place up the street at the Krohn Conservatory earlier in the day. Eleven hot air balloons tether themselves around the edge of Eden Park's Mirror Lake and sequentially light up the evening. We couldn't think of a better way to kick off the holidays. The event is completely free and quite a sight. Here's a sample of what we saw.
