WashU balloon goes over big

WashU balloon in Forest Park Balloon Race

For the first time, Washington University in St. Louis sponsored a hot air balloon in the 2023 Great Forest Park Balloon Race, an annual hot air balloon festival held in Forest Park. “Time Traveler,” the WashU balloon, was among the dozens of entrants that delighted the community during the pre-race Balloon Glow, Friday, Sept. 15, and the race itself Saturday, Sept. 16.
