16 Thursday, August 28, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Briefly Noted I1[111 IIIIIIIIIII I I I Great Reno balloon race The Great Reno Balloon Race will be a welcoming eyeful of wonderfully de- signed special shaped bal- loons. This free community event occurs on September 5, 6 and 7 at the preserved ranch lands of Rancho San Rafael Park. Returning to Reno will be the Korbel Champagne bottle.
