Photos: Lift Up St. Louis replaces Great Forest Park Balloon Race

Hot air balloons took flight from Kiener Plaza and other locations around St. Louis during Lift Up St. Louis on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020. The traditional Great Forest Park Balloon Race was canceled this year due to COVID-19 and restrictions on crowd size. However, the organizers of The Great Forest Park Balloon Race wanted to honor essential workers, educators, healthcare heroes and those standing up for change by hosting Lift Up St. Louis, a series of unannounced, pop up balloon flights around the area.
