The Downtown Aquarium

Of all the impressive neon-hued characters among the 4,000 participants of Vegas Seven’s inaugural GlowRun, perhaps none made a bigger impression than the Balloon People. This festooned bunch drifted elegantly—if a little squeakily—like aquatic creatures through the sea of humanity that was Fremont East the evening of Oct. 7.

The event, which featured a 5k race and AfterGlow block party, raised more than $5,000 for Aid for AIDS of Southern Nevada.
