Updated: Current Balloon Race Outlook

Sept. 22 9:00 a.m. - We just spoke Greg Hanson, Head Race Official, and he said that winds are expected to die down around 4:00 p.m.  It will all depend upon how much they die down and exactly when.  He also said that all of the balloons scheduled to come will be there.

It will be a wait and see; the latest we can take off is 5:30 p.m.  We will be closely monitoring the weather and do everything possible to make it happen.

NOTE: Anyone with tents that have been set up are encouraged to weight them down as winds will increase during this afternoon.
