RE/MAX Balloon Comes to Sturbridge - Today Sept. 19

RE/MAX Balloon Comes to Sturbridge

RE/MAX hot air balloon

Calling all RE/MAX agents in New England!  The RE/MAX hot air balloon will be making an appearance in Sturbridge, MA, today Sept. 19.  The balloon is part of the first-ever Fiskdale Fest, an event celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Copper Stallion, and the 20th anniversary of the Sturbridge Country Inn.

For those of you who may not know, Fiskdale is a village within the town of Sturbridge, on the western part of town.  While still a part of Sturbridge, Fiskdale has its own zip code and post office, and tends to be where the action is:  plenty restaurants, shops, artisans and craftsmen, festivals and so on.

The hot air balloon will be sited in Turner Field on Route 20 (Main Street).  It is across from the Sturbridge Country Inn.

The balloon is expected to arrive around 3:30 pm, and tethered hot air balloon rides will be given from 4:30 - 6:30 PM.  A donation for each ride is requested, the proceeds of which will go to the Second Chance Animal Shelter in nearby Brookfield, MA.

Fiskdale Fest also includes live music, kids activities, and food from local vendors.  Come on down, bring the family, and enjoy the day.

Happy sailing!

Nice photo and it sounds like a good time will be had by all who attend. I wish I could attend always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon.

The Remax balloon was at our balloon fest not to long ago and gave tethered rides also. Recommend getting in line early if you want a ride. The line gets pretty long!!!

This brings back memories, when I was with RE/Max here I brought the ballon in every year and put on a weekend of activities called Nickel Fest and what a hoot it was.

Kathryn, the RE/MAX balloon has been to our area and given tethered rides as well.  It is always such a community draw.  I'm so proud to be a RE/MAX associate.
