<span class="userContent">Eight local hot air balloon pilots were featured in a surprise flash mob balloon glow around 6 p.m. Tuesday evening in Longview.</span>
While the pilots simultaneously fired up their propane burners, visitors had a chance to walk up to the balloons and talk to the pilots themselves. Even Santa made an appearance to the somewhat impromptu event.
<span class="userContent"><span class="userContent">The event was held to spread a little Christmas cheer during the holiday season, according to the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/GreatTexasBalloonRace" target="_blank">Great Texas Balloon Race Facebook page</a>.</span></span>
