“The church called our office and was having the theme of ‘Sky’ for this year’s Vacation Bible School and thought the RE/MAX Balloon would be a perfect fit and we were happy to sponsor a tethered hot air balloon event for their fellowship,” said Heather Holliday, General Manager of RE/MAX Elite.

Dozens of tethered rides were given to the children, parents and teachers and afterwards they were able to play with the wholesale balloons man “mascot” as well as learn the mechanisms that launch and navigate the balloon by Pilot Captain Richard Davenport.

The red, white and blue RE/MAX hot air balloon stands 70-feet tall and represents the worldwide RE/MAX network’s “Above the Crowd!®” philosophy of service.

The balloon is one of more than 120 hot air balloons in the world that carry the distinctive red, white and blue RE/MAX trademark.

Headquartered in Denver, RE/MAX International adopted the hot air balloon as a promotional symbol in 1978.

Since that time, RE/MAX International, regions, offices and sales associates have sponsored or participated in hundreds of balloon events around the world, including the RE/MAX Cup National Gas Balloon Race, the U.S. qualifier for the International Gordon Bennett Cup.
