The 29th annual Great Reno Balloon kicks off Friday, Sept. 10. Today local media got a sneak peek at what it takes to get a hot-air balloon in the air, and while drafty winds grounded some of the balloons, many more sailed away into the early morning sky. Check out www.renoballoon.com for details on the weekend’s schedule of events and what to bring to best enjoy the show.
