Rain on Tuesday and the threat of rain has caused the cancellation of one of the Cedar Rapids Freedom Festival's most popular events.

Ground conditions at Brucemore and forecasted storms forced organizers to cancel Tuesday's Balloon Glow, along with its rain date on Thursday.

The next Freedom Festival event is the Patriotic Picnic on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Marion Square Park.
