Remember when Lady Gaga said she was going to perform in outer space back in 2015? Yeah, that never happened, did it? But you know what is happening? A hot air balloon event in Hialeah that’s so Miami, even the DJs are spinning from the sky.
It’s a first of its kind for Florida. Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah is getting lit up.
Richard Garbie: “Glow in the Park is a hot air balloon Glow.”
Now through Sunday, but Glow in the Park has the most Miami twist imaginable: DJs will be spinning from the balloons, in the air.
DJ Jorge Santana: “Bueno, I’ve DJ’d for 36 years. I’ve DJed in a bus, in a club, internationally, but I’ve never DJed in a hot air balloon.”
Oh, my God. No way, me neither. What a coincidence.
DJ Jorge Santana: “And that’s cool.”
DJ Africa: “First time in Miami, and it’s an honor for me to be here tonight, and we’re going to do it for everybody. I mean, here in Hialeah Park, especially.”
This isn’t, like, pretend. See those turntables?
DJ Luxx: “Playing music, emceeing, talking on a mic, doing the things that we do in venues, clubs here in Miami.”
As if that weren’t enough of a spectacle…
Richard Garbie: “With a laser show at 9 o’clock every evening.”
And weather permitting…
Richard Garbie: “Tethered rides for the guests.”
Translation: you get to go up, too!
Little girl: “Really fun to ride the hot air balloon ride.”
And, hey, that famous Re/Max balloon is cool and all, don’t get me wrong, but they’ve got a Tweety.
Richard Garbie: “Cartoon character balloons, so Tom and Jerry, Tweety and Sylvester.”
Side note: I want to be friends with this lady.
Richard Garbie: “So, yeah, it’s like a combination of different balloons, different shapes, different sizes.”
And based on what we’re hearing, one consensus.
Woman with highlights: “The event is super amazing. We had a great time, the balloons are gorgeous!”
Little girl: “The fire show was great, the music.”
Ugh, that is my song!
Poncho: “It’s a great place to share some time with the family!”
OK, this one, too, but Bad Bunny, like, quiet down! I can’t even hear Poncho.
Poncho: “This is an event that not usually happens in Miami.”
Helen Hernandez: “The drinks, the atmosphere, it was super cool, I really like it.”
I mean, look at this Chihuahua — is that a Chihuahua? — happy as can be.
Rami Talhami: “There’s all kind of food, milkshakes — you name it, they have it.”
Richard Garbie: “Great food trucks, vendors, bounce houses for the kids.”
