Here are a few events you can check out!
2020 Centerpoint Energy Red River Balloon Rally June 12th & 13th!
Drawing a record of nearly 20,000 spectators, the annual Red River Balloon Rally is north Louisiana’s largest hot air balloon festival. This family-friendly event welcomes everyone to enjoy a colorful field of fun every summer in Shreveport-Bossier. After much thought and consideration, the Red River Balloon Rally committee has decided to convert the 2020 CenterPoint Energy Red River Balloon Rally into a series of hot air balloon overflights that will soar across various neighborhoods in Shreveport-Bossier, June 12-13. Weather permitting, this picturesque overflight will allow spectators to enjoy 10-12 colorful balloons from the comfort of their homes or the seat of their cars. Due to the recent COVID-19 mandates, it is in the best interest of our community to scale back our popular event and prioritize the health of our local residents.
