Hot Air Balloon Race: Fun Family Reno-Tahoe Event!


There is a great sense of childlike magic for adults and children alike when it comes to hot-air balloons. You could be three, thirteen, or thirty years old, and watching them fire up and take flight is still exhilarating and beautiful. Watching hundreds of balloons fly through the sky, aglow with bright colors on a crisp late summer morning is something every kid (at heart) should experience.

Every September the Reno-Tahoe area is treated to the largest FREE hot-air balloon event in the world at the Great Reno Balloon Race. This year’s event is held September 11-13, 2015 at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park in Reno, Nevada.

The festival is packed full of outdoor events that start as early as 5:15am on September 11. We’re talking a famous Glow Show (this is a MUST-SEE!), Pajama Party, Balloon Mass Ascension, and much more. Since the balloons take flight at dawn we do suggest hitting the hay early, and ensuring you have some way of accessing hot coffee or a hot beverage in the morning as you take the short drive from Squaw Valley into Reno. Watching the sun barely rising over the Sierra Nevada Mountains is a sight to see, and another treat before watching all the hot-air balloons ascend! Pack snacks for kiddos, dress warmly in layers, and don’t forget to bring your camera!
