Balloon Race Being Held in Harrison This Weekend
Posted: Wednesday, September 09, 2009
The Arkansas State Championship Balloon Races will be held this weekend in Harrison. Events get underway Friday night at 7 o'clock with a Balloon Glow, and tethered rides available for 3-dollars. Ring grabs will be held at 7:30 Saturday and Sunday mornings. Balloonists compete for prizes by flying into the socer complex from various locations, and trying to grab a ring from the top of a pole. And on Saturday at 5:30 p.m., there's a Hare and Hound sponsor race. The Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce is hosting the free event, with families encouraged to take cameras and lawn chairs. Free parking for the Arkansas State Championship Balloon Races is available at Harrison Junior High School next to the soccer complex.
