Balloon Races Event

Don’t have plans for the weekend yet? Then you will want to check out the nation’s largest, free hot air balloon race that is happening today through Sunday.  This event features 80 participants piloting a vivid array of hot air balloons. The Reno, NV skyline becomes a canvas of color as the balloons light up the early morning sky at dawn patrol (Dawn patrol ~ getting up extremely early, usually before sunrise).

You will find traditional, imaginative and crazy  cool balloon shapes taking flight. It is such great entertainment for everyone at any age. There are always food venders so you can get a snack but many attendees like to bring a picnic to enjoy while watching the balloons take flight.
