Longview, Texas — For the past two days the city of Longview has been welcoming a lot of visitors and some pretty big balloons for the 2013 Great Texas Balloon Race.
The 2013 race finally began on Thursday after being halted by weather conditions and it seems mother nature is back at it again.
At 8 pm these balloons were supposed to be lined up on the ground for a beautiful and colorful balloon display to give East Texans a chance to not only see these balloons up close, but also learn how they operate. Unfortunately because of weather conditions the balloons could not be inflated, and instead a "fire show" was held.
The Great Texas Balloon Race will give the "Balloon Glow" another try on Saturday at 8 in the evening.
