RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A setback Friday morning for The Great Reno Balloon Race. After last year’s event was canceled due to the pandemic, organizers expected a large crowd to come to Rancho San Rafael Park. Unfortunately, inclement weather forced organizers to cancel Friday’s event.

Rain, thunder, and lightning began around the scheduled time of the Glow Show. Many spectators were waiting to hear news from organizers.

The GRBR team waited to see if any entertainment could be provided, but as the weather progressed, the decision was made to cancel to keep the crowd safe.

The schedule will remain the same for the rest of the weekend. It is the event’s 40th anniversary. Click here for more information.
