This year, the Great Reno Balloon Race team is supersizing the Glow Show at Dawn Patrol for a wowing spectacle. Between 50-100 balloons are expected to participate in Friday morning’s 5:15 a.m. Glow Show – it’s even choreographed to music!

New special-shaped balloons you’ll see in this year’s race include a Spider Pig and a Hummingbird Jewel! Can you spot them in the poster?

Download the new mobile app from the App Store or Google Play for an updated event schedule, and finder for balloons, pilots and vendors.

The new Dawn Patrol Brew, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Dawn Patrol, was created by Great Basin Brewing Co.

Cheers!
