About Us

Since 2000 The Great Balloon Race has called Galesburg, Illinois it's home. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Lake Storey, it has played host to more than 30 majestic hot air balloons each year. Pilots from across the country have traveled to this event to compete in the balloon competition and to share their balloons and stories with familes from around the region. The event will be held July 26-28th 2013.

ALL TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE AND ALL EVENTS ARE WEATHER PERMITTING AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.


(BALLOONS CAN NOT LAUNCH IF WINDS ARE OVER 10MPH)
