Balloon race video and upcoming events

There are hot-air balloon rallies, races, and fiestas all over the place: The Yahoo directory has a long list of annual events, SmarterTravel.com's Kate Hamman recently wrote about Albuquerque's upcoming Balloon Fiesta; and the Red Rock Balloon Rally in Gallup, New Mexico, will be held from December 2 to 4.

The reason I bring this up is because I just found a short video of this year's Great Reno Balloon Race that highlights the visual impact these events can have, and thought I'd post a link for people who A) enjoy watching pretty things, and B) are trying to figure out if they'd like to attend a balloon event and want to get a sense of what it's like. Listen with sound for maximum soothing effect.
