ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Organizers were determined to make it happen, and they did.

Even with wind and rain, hundreds of people came out for the 17th annual LaRosa’s Balloon Glow at Coney Island Sunday night.

Watch the balloons in the video above.

Organizers watched the weather, but the show went on, to the delight of 7-year-old Sam.

“I like when they put the fire,” Sam said. “You see the heat a lot and it grows bigger.”

The show also included fireworks. While some fireworks displays were canceled, many still went on Sunday and others were scheduled for Monday.
