Tethered hot-air balloons lit up the front lawn of the Brucemore Monday night (7/1/13). The event, which was rescheduled last week due to the weather, couldn't have had better conditions the second time around. Several food vendors were present while Lonesome Road rocked the stage, and kids ran along the grass between activities. Relive the night with our video by Sam Fathallah and photos by Liz Martin. The Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival was proud to continue the tradition of this iconic event.
