Description

We are very fortunate to be able to host the Hot Air Balloon Shoot-Out. This year will be the 10th annual competitive event. The event will begin the evening of June 3rd and conclude the morning of June 5th. We will be hosting approximately 15 hot air balloon pilots as we come together to celebrate what is great about ballooning. This group of visitors are a tight knit community that have welcomed many Carson City residents into their 'family' as crew members as well as future pilots.

The evening balloon flights will launch from the centrally located site behind Carson City-Crystal High School. The morning flights will be held in the early hours on Saturday and Sunday.

Description

On Friday evening after the flight, half of our pilots will take the field again, located at Carson City-Crystal High School, and inflate their balloon envelopes, to show the crowd how they "glow" and "twinkle glow".  In exactly the same manner on Saturday evening, the other half of our pilot roster will take the field for the same type of 'glow'. So, if you didn’t see your favorite balloon Friday night, come back on Saturday night to see if 'your' balloon will be glowing among the crowd. Our local announcer will be 'conducting' the evenings and will need your help in making this event a success.
