Don’t miss this year’s first spectacular annual drone show. This is sure to be a great addition to the Great Texas Balloon Race along with the annual balloon glow, curated concerts and more.
the GTBR proudly welcomes our pilots for the 2023 national hot air balloon championship. You can click below to view each pilots balloon and sponsors.
Our special shape balloons will inflate in different places on Saturday morning.
Inflations are set 7-7:45 a.m.
For the first time this year, the Great Texas Balloon Race will include the flight of “model” hot air balloons. The slightly smaller balloons are still powered by propane but are steered by a remote pilot on the ground and do not have a basket — kind of like a model airplane. These balloons won’t be competing in the Great Texas Balloon Race, but balloon fans can catch them June 16 and 17 during the event.
Evening inflations at the event grounds will be at 8:50 p.m. during the balloon glow.
