The Great War Memorial Balloon Race

October 03 - October 05, 2014

Mid-Town Little Rock
War Memorial Park
Little Rock, AR United States 72206
Number of balloons: 25
Year began: 2012

An estimated crowd of over 20,000 spectators came out to enjoy the balloons each our first 2 years. We were overwhelmed and overjoyed with your enthusiasm of the sport of hot air ballooning! This year it is our goal to bring in even more Hot Air Balloons, approximately 25 -30, including some new SPECIAL SHAPES from all over the country that will magically color the Little Rock sky in the mornings and will “Glow” with a rainbow of twinkling colors in the evenings with new Special Shaped balloons to add to the fun. We will have jazz music, food, vendors, and children’s activities throughout the weekend as well. In addition, this event will aid in community involvement, as we are once again, inviting local businesses and nonprofit charitable organizations to participate so that they may showcase their products and raise awareness and funds for their special services and programs.

This year the benefiting nonprofits are: Autism Speaks, Boys Scouts, The Boys & Girls Club, C.A.R.E. for Animals, Civitan , and Special Olympics
