The Red River Balloon Rally is a competition…
The U.S. Team Nationals competition brings together the top 30 national balloon pilots. Starting on June 21, 2022 and if you’re around Shreveport-Bossier, you might see a number of balloons floating in the sky between 6:00am - 7:00am. Follow the Red River Balloon Rally Facebook page for the most up-to-date information and locations.
But it’s so much more fun!
Starting at 5:00pm on Friday and Saturday, come out to the Brookshire Grocery Arena for family friendly fun. Friday night features the band Tipsey and A Tribute to Journey: Odyssey Road. Saturday concerts include LANCO and Shayliff. Both nights enjoy the AEP Swepco Kidz Fun Zone and the popular tethered balloon rides with four balloons this year. (wind & weather permitting).
Of course the most popular events are the Balloon Glow sponsored by TeamLogic IT and Stuart’s Integrated Services at 8:30pm followed by the Fireworks Show sponsored by Red River Bank at 9:30pm. The event ends at 10:05pm. Don’t miss either of these! The weather may change some times and events.
