One of my favorite things about living in New Mexico was occasionally seeing hot air balloons on my morning commute. I always knew it was going to be a great day if it started with a hot air balloon sighting. While I see fewer balloons in North Carolina, my theory still holds true.
Clairemont is the PR partner for the second WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest. The three-day festival is organized solely by volunteers and it is estimated that 300 people will be needed each day. To kickoff the call for volunteers, organizers recently held a day-long event to generate excitement for the festival, and starting the day with a tethered hot air balloon certainly did the trick!
