During the RE/MAX® Ballunar Liftoff Festival, the hot air balloon pilots will be competing in a number of flights hoping to take home the title of Event Champion along with cash prizes.Balloon competition is sometimes mistaken as balloon racing where the balloons are racing against each other and the clock. In actuality, the pilots are competing against each other in being able to navigate the balloon to predetermined targets.Since the wind direction varies at different altitudes, the skill of competition is being able to read the wind currents at different altitudes and being able to navigate the balloon in those wind currents to the targets set by the event organizers.
