The Great Reno Balloon Race brings together the nation's top balloonists competing in events like the Hare & Hound, Balloon Blackjack, and various Fly In Tasks. Now since its humble beginnings in 1982, the Great Reno Balloon Race is bigger and better than ever!

The Great Reno Balloon Race is free to spectators thanks to the generous support of event sponsors. This year's event will take place from September 5–7, 2014. Weather during that period can usually be described as benign. Dressing in layers is advised as the mornings can be chilly before dawn. But once the sun comes up the mercury rises quickly. If you forget to bring enough layers, no worries. Official sweatshirts and jackets are available at the event.
