Join the pilots of the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic on a new night for the party portion of the event. The family-friendly Nite Glow offers fun with ballooning, music and community on Saturday, not Friday, this year. The show starts with country rockers Soul Patch at 6 p.m. Enjoy the tunes, munch on food (bring your own or buy it there), play with the kids and watch the tethered balloons grow brighter as night falls.
• You also can see the balloons fly at 7:10 a.m. Sept. 5 and 6, weather permitting.
