Special Events

We create events & experiences that people cherish

Hot air balloons are a uniquely special way to punctuate local area events.  They can serve as a floating invitation to lead people to the opening or closing ceremony of your special event.  They can also be used to reward sales teams for "out of this world" performance, as the center point of a corporate team building workshop, or to generate excitement at a local festival while raising money for your organization.

Events Featuring Hot Air Balloons

We've listed a few ideas (below) on how hot air balloons can support your Houston area event planning and event production needs.

Sales Promotions

Hot air balloons create excitement that attracts and holds attention, without regard for the spectator's age, income, gender, or occupation. 

They bring smiles to the faces (and favorable impressions to the minds) of those who behold their presence AND they score very high cost per thousand impressions (CPM) ratings. 

These 60 foot tall "colorful outdoor billboards" combine broad demographic appeal (without the overt feel of commercialism) to positively accentuate and/or promote corporate and charitable causes. 

In fact, balloons are so beautiful that people want to photograph them...

Examples of opportunities for balloons to positively affect sales promotions include:

  • grand opening celebrations

  • new home sales / tour of homes

  • broadcast radio promotions

  • charity tournaments

  • church fund raising campaigns

Team building activities

  • Make our tethered hot air balloon the feature of your group's next social or teaming activity.  Ask us about competitive games that can be played in conjunction with tethered balloon rides & group breakfast offerings.

  • This is a great meeting idea for leadership meetings, adventure club meetings and single club meetings.

Fund raiser campaigns and benefits

  • golf tournaments

  • marathons & competitions

  • silent auctions & more

Special Events
  • grand openings
  • festivals, block parties, street fairs
  • hospitality events, theme parties
  • family reunions.
