The 2nd Annual Glass City Balloon Race returns to Northwest Ohio July 14-16, 2017 at The Town Center at Levis Commons! The Glass City Balloon Race is the premier hot air balloon event in Northwest Ohio. This is a FREE community event, based on the generosity of our gracious sponsors. We are pleased to partner with Girls on the Run of NW Ohio for 2017. As our charitable event partner, proceeds from this year’s event will benefit local schools and young women throughout the area, providing scholarships and equipment to those in need. There will be 5 balloon flights and two evening GLOWs over the course of the weekend, along with many family friendly activities, shopping, and dining at Levis Commons.
