The Great Reno Balloon Race

I can’t believe it is that time of year again. The Great Reno Balloon Race is back. Normally, I don’t go to this event because it is so crowded. But I hear that there is nothing like watching the balloons rise in the air in the early dawn.

And of course, this event has been all over the news. Some of the events occuring in Reno today and throughout the weekend are Dawn Patrol, Glow Show, Tissue Paper Balloon Launch, Kids Corner, Balloon Boulevard, and Balloon Blackjack. Of course, there had to be blackjack… we are in Nevada, ya know.

My husband is talking about seeing the Dawn Patrol. Apparently the balloons ascend at 5:30 a.m. (still dark). It is a dangerous maneuver, but oh, so beautiful.
