2019 Red River Balloon Rally will be held at LSUS Shreveport on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13 at 5 p.m. Admission is $10 and up. Parking is $5.
The Red River Balloon Rally is the home of the U.S. Southeast Regional Balloon Championship Race. Drawing more than 20,000 attendees, this annual hot air balloon smackdown is accompanied by live music from a list of regional and nationally acclaimed musicians, food and specialty vendors, children's rides, tethered balloon rides, and a wonderful sight of scores of hot air balloons dotting the southern landscape. To top each of the two night's events off, a spectacular balloon glow is accompanied by a fabulous fireworks display to celebrate the winner of the race and the wonderful class of aviation that is the hot air balloon.
