Organizers of the Great Reno Balloon race say attendance at this year's event was a record 180,000.
Spokeswoman Marlene Olsen says perfect weather and expanded
promotion throughout the region helped draw more crowds.
She says organizers are already looking at ways to make the three-day event better for next year.
Every balloon in the race has a sponsor.
The total of 100 balloons sponsored this year is more than the past few years.
