Giant Hot Air Balloon to Appear at Reading375 Celebration

It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s a giant, seven-story-tall hot-air balloon!

The red, white and blue RE/MAX hot air balloon, 70 feet tall and representing the worldwide RE/MAX network’s “Above the Crowd!®” philosophy of service, will tether (weather permitting) at the Birch Meadow Elementary School, 27 Arthur B Lord Dr., Reading, on Saturday, June 15 from 6 – 8 p.m.

The RE/MAX Balloon visit is sponsored by RE/MAX Encore, as part of the Reading375 anniversary celebration.

RE/MAX has the world’s largest fleet of hot air balloons, scheduling appearances at community events, office openings, and educational activities across the globe. The most recognized symbol in real estate, and one of the Top 10 most instantly recognized corporate logos in the world, the hot air balloon is symbolic of superior service, and the freedom RE/MAX Encore agents have in developing their own business.

“We’re encouraging kids to bring their parents, and parents to bring their cameras,” Smith continued. “The balloon pilot is a skilled aviator but is also a great entertainer and educator. He’ll gather the kids around to demonstrate the mechanisms that launch and navigate the balloon, as well as a brief history of mankind’s progress in achieving powered flight.”
