The Great Reno Balloon Race is one of the most colorful and spectacular events Reno has to offer. Don't miss the exciting Hare and Hound Race, mass ascension and community launches at dawn. A favorite with the locals, this event takes place at Rancho San Rafael Park, located just north of downtown's glittering casino action. After lift-off, enjoy food, crafts, art and souvenirs. For more information, visit or call 775-826-1181.

The mission of the Great Reno Balloon Race is to provide a premier, safe, family-oriented/tourist-attractive, visually dramatic event that celebrates the joy of flight while remaining free to the public.
