RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon Footage from Sturbridge, MA

The RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon came to Sturbridge, MA, on September 20 as part of the first-ever Fiskdale Fest.  Our broker, Lorraine Herbert, and many agents from our offices were there to watch the unfolding of the balloon.  It was quite exciting, and I took tons of photos.  Here are the best ones.

Special thanks to the folks at the Copper Stallion and the Sturbridge Country Inn for helping bring the RE/MAX balloon to Sturbridge.  The donations received for each tethered ride went directly to the Second Chance Animal Shelter.

How fun to see it up close and personal.  Glad to see the ballon used for a great cause!

Looks like you have beautiful weather for the balloon rides.  I'm looking forward to the next time the balloon reaches our area.  Thanks for sharing!

Pat and Lina: It was something to see, a first for me. Now that I know how little room it requires, I hope to take advantage of using it for future events.

Watching balloon's go up is just one of the best experiences ever and isn't RE/MAX smart to take advantage.  If you ever get a chance, go to the Balloon Fiest on Phoenix, AZ - it's one of a kind.

Michael, you are absolutely right.  Oh I would love to see that balloon festival in Phoenix.  Someday, someday.
