Great Reno Balloon Race With Sony And Action Camera

Sony Specialty Representative and the staff of Action Camera, Reno are having a Photo Workshop at the Great Reno Balloon Race. They will host a Thursday evening “Tips & Tricks’ class at the store, as well as, offer Sony mirrorless cameras and lenses for loan to utilize during the Friday races. You must attend the class in order to borrow any Sony equipment.

The Great Reno Balloon Race is the largest free hot-air ballooning event in the world. During four days in early September, you can look up into the Reno skies and see a rainbow of hot air balloons soaring about. From its humble beginnings in 1982 with just 20 balloons, The Great Reno Balloon Race has taken flight with up to 100 balloons each year. It is known as a world-renowned, and locally, a beloved community tradition.

Taking place just a few miles north of downtown Reno, the event enchants both young and old with its vibrant colors and inspiring music.
