This weekend we are flying to Reno to experience the Reno Hot Air Balloon Festival. This will be our first time experiencing the event and we are so excited!
I am also a bit nervous because I will be experiencing part of the festival from a hot air balloon. I am checking off an item on my bucket list and taking my first hot air balloon ride.
I am nervous, excited and a bit more nervous for my ride. I hear it is going to be absolutely amazing and peaceful and I will love it. That is what I keep telling myself as I think about floating in the air with no steering mechanisms to steer the balloon……
There are over 100 balloons participating in the Great Reno Balloon Race this year. Including a ton of shaped balloons that I can’t wait to see!

With a Park Ranger Husband you know we are excited to see the Smokey The Bear balloon!!!!
During our trip we also plan on checking out the Lake Tahoe area along with the International Camel Races in Virginia City,
We will be staying at the gorgeous Eldorado during our stay. We are excited to check out the Eldorado’s newest show Spectra during our visit.
Spectra is the second mischievous excursion into the spectrum of light and fire from the producers of Illuminaire. This show has a more edgy, raw, European feel. Bringing in elements of live percussion, the New Berlin style Circus as well as powerful lasers and effects. This combination of fabulous costumes, aerial acrobatics, exotic contortion and unique blazing fire performance will appeal to anyone who enjoys a fun show with a high visual impact.
This is where elegance in dance meets the wild of circus, where traditional shows are inverted and steam is the fuel of laughter.
A dazzling display of light and fervor of flaming passion.
