Each July, Hot Air Balloons cover Longview's sky for one weekend during the Great Texas Balloon Race.

That weekend it's not unusual to be driving down the road on Saturday morning, look out your window and see colorful balloons dotted across the sky. As enchanting as they are during the day, they are also stunning to see lit up at night during the Balloon Glow.
