10th Annual LaRosa's Balloon Glow

Friday, July 3

Coney Island comes alive at the 10th Annual LaRosa's Balloon Glow! Live music, family entertainment and Coney's Classic Rides make for a fun-filled evening. Later, the evening sky illuminates when as many as 20 hot air balloons of every color "glow" for all to see. The grand finale for the event is a spectacular Rozzi's Famous Fireworks display over the banks of Lake Como beginning at 10pm. In celebration of our tenth year, we are proud to announce the largest fireworks display in event history – courtesy of LaRosa's!

One recommendation for the July 3rd and the Balloon Glow. Get there early!! The rides are virtually empty early in the day, but the crowds start to roll in around 5 and 6. Parking becomes very congested as the time the balloons "glow" approaches. The 3rd has typically been the busiest day of Coney`s season the last several years (although last year it was stymied by rain).

And the firework display is always a nice display, over the banks of Lake Como.

The fireworks on June 27th have been rescheduled to July 11th, so as not to interfere with the 311 concert at Riverbend. Remember that Coney`s classic rides are now open until 10pm every Saturday in June, July, and August.

Well, it is far from a given that casinos (or even slot machines) will be added to Riverdowns, and its future remains uncertain.

Buying additional land is expensive, not to mention the fact that there are some residences across the street from the park. Also, the topography there is rather challenging. Coney does own two parcels on the north side of Kellogg on either side of Sutton, right where the main parking entrance is to the park. Those lots are used for overflow parking (they will be used for July 3rd) as well as for some Riverbend concerts that are sold out.
