Arky Hot Air Balloon

This was my favorite special shapes balloon at our Great Texas Balloon Races held annually in Longview, Texas. The name of this hot air balloon is ARKY , with a Noah's ark theme. It is so colorful with the massive ark and bright, colorful animals. It is a special delight for children!
The Great Texas Balloon Race is a world class event attracting the very best competitive pilots from across the United States and the world. The Great Texas Balloon Race is a Balloon Federation of America event and will host the BFA's United States National Championship competition for 2012-2014. For these three years, the national competition will bring an addition three days of competition flights to the East Texas area.
Considered by many of the pilots that compete at the Great Texas Balloon Race to be the best run event on the circuit, the Great Texas Balloon Race earned Longview the official designation as "The Balloon Capital of Texas" by the Governor of Texas in 1985.
