Record Crowds Attend Reno Balloon Races

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.
