Join us for the 34th annual Great Mississippi River Balloon Race October 18-20, 2019. Mirroring the lengthy history of the city, festival grounds are located at Rosalie Mansion's high bluffs above the Mississippi River. Live, world-class musical entertainment keeps feet moving while hot air balloons drift silently overhead. In addition to the breathtaking location, a carnival and Arts and Crafts market make the GMRBR one of the most family-friendly events in the state.
