The Great Reno Balloon Race

A display of light in darkness and color in the light.  Any form of flight is marvelous, but preparation is always calculated with safety at the forefront.  Once airborne, freedom.  An untethered escape from all things clouding the mind.  On the ground, spectators look upwards in awe as aeronauts fill the sky with balloons of various shapes and colors.  This graceful dance of nylon and polyester has been helping bring summer to a close for over 40 years as up to 100 hot air balloons take to the sky over Reno, NV every September.
