For the young at heart mom, this free, three-day event at Turf Valley might make the perfect Mother's Day weekend. Live entertainment and vendors will accompany the balloons during the May 10 and 11 events, which go from 4 to 9 p.m. Bring a blanket if you want to watch the glowing balloon launch at dusk. If Mom likes to wake up early, bring her to the balloon launches at 6:30 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. Because horse racing just wouldn't be complete without hot air balloons. Right?
