Weekend: Great War Memorial Balloon Race

Posted By on Fri, Jun 22, 2012 at 9:34 AM

The Great War Memorial Balloon Race starts Friday at 4 p.m. at War Memorial Park.

Attention, fans of hot air balloons, jazz music, food trucks and free fun things: The Great War Memorial Balloon Race starts this afternoon at 4 p.m. at — you guessed it — War Memorial Park.

There will be balloon rides, balloon races, balloon glows, music from The Bob Boyd Sounds, Delta Breed, a Zumba workout lead by fitness experts and more. Admission is free, but food and balloon rides are not.

Things get rolling early on Saturday and Sunday, with flights and competitions starting at 6 a.m. This is all weather permitting, naturally.

Here's the full schedule.
