Balloon Fiesta 2007 Photo by Paulena-KE5DDZ
The 6th Annual MidFirst Ohio Challenge hot air balloon festival is slated for July 18-20, 2008 at Smith Park in downtown Middletown. This event draws approximately 70,000 people to Middletown who come to watch the skydivers, hear the music, eat the food and watch those beautiful balloons. They also tend to spend money, not only on the grounds of the event but in area restaurants, gas stations, retail stores, etc.
This is a great way to publicize your business and help make the event the best it can be.
Each balloon pilot and balloon official receives a "pilot pack" when they register - 50 total packs. It is customary to include coupons for discounts at area businesses in those packs. (Pilots and crew often go out to eat after their flights.) Many businesses choose to provide items bearing their logo to include in the packs as useful gifts. Some even provide larger value items to be used as prizes for the pilot awards banquet.
If you can participate in the pilot pack or award prize program, please let us know asap. Pilot packs will be assembled next week.
Call 513-705-1770 email email@example.com or just drop off items at the Chamber office, 1500 Central Avenue.
Thank you for considering our request.
