Take to the Skies
There is no better time to enjoy in Reno than in the fall. The temperate weather, vibrant changing leaves and crisp air are the perfect complement to some of the famous area events. Remember to look up this month, because there is a lot to see in our beautiful Nevada skies.
The Great Reno Balloon Race is FREE to spectators thanks to the generous support of event sponsors. It is always scheduled for the first Friday through Sunday after Labor Day. Following the Great Reno Balloon Race, is the Reno Championship Air Races.
Held every September just north of Reno, the National Championship Air Races have become an institution for northern Nevada and aviation enthusiasts from around the world. For one week, the high desert north of Reno becomes home to hundreds of aircraft, their pilots and crews. In the past ten years, the event has attracted more than 150,000 spectators and generated more than $60 million a year for the region’s economy. The event features six racing classes, a large display of static aircraft and several military and civil flight demonstrations.
So however you choose to spend the season, be sure to look toward the sky!
