The 37th annual Great Texas Balloon Race, held from August 1 to 3, in Longview, Texas, will include a full week of associated activities this year, because the Balloon Federation of America’s Hot Air Competition Division is concurrently holding the United States National Championship Race beginning July 28.
There will be live concerts on Friday and Saturday nights, featuring Roger Creager and Tracy Lawrence. The popular Balloon Glows will entertain crowds nightly with a display of color. Kids Land is a safe and restricted area for children that requires a small separate entry fee. Vendors will also be there with food, arts, crafts and other merchandise.
