Great Reno Balloon Race - 30th Anniversary

Rancho San Rafael Park
September 9, 2011 -September 11, 2011

The Great Reno Balloon Race is one of Reno's most colorful and spectacular events and is held at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park (just a few miles north of downtown). Held the weekend after Labor Day,  2011 will mark the 30th anniversary of one of the region's most popular events.  Over 100 of the nation’s top hot air balloonists compete in multiple competitions as a mass ascension. A trademark of the race is the Dawn Patrol, which takes place before the sun rises and provides an amazing spectacle as balloons glow, twinkle, and fly against the dark sky. A comprehensive selection of food, crafts, art and souvenirs awaits spectators along with wonderfully uplifting music to complement this celebration of flight.
