The Red River Balloon Rally was held at the LSUS campus with thousands of people in attendance. This balloon festival increased in size with over 30 hot air balloons, some having familiar faces such as Tweety Bird, a penguin, a squirrel and even Darth Vader. Almost fifty hot air balloons competed in the BFA U.S. National Hot Air Balloon Championship. The Red River Balloon Rally was filled with festival entertainment, food vendors, balloon tethered rides, balloon glow at sunset, kidz fun zone, kite flying and skydiving demonstrations, fireworks, live music with headliners Crowder and The Molly Ringwalds and also the US Nationals Competition Flight.
