Hot Air Balloon Visits Vacation Bible School in Melbourne, FL

The kids had a wonderful time taking rides in the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon this morning at Suntree United Methodist Church as well as have the opportunity to learn all about the Hot Air Balloons.

Melbourne, FL, June 13, 2012 - ( - A giant, seven-story tall RE/MAX hot-air balloon was on site at Suntree United Methodist Church today and gave dozens of tethered rides to the children and families with the Church.

“The Church called our office and was having the theme of 'Sky' for this year’s Vacation Bible School and thought the RE/MAX Balloon would be a perfect fit and we were happy to sponsor a tethered hot air balloon event for their fellowship,” said Heather Holliday, General Manager of RE/MAX Elite.

Dozens of tethered rides were given to the children, parents and teachers and afterwards they were able to play with the balloon man “mascot” as well as learn the mechanisms that launch and navigate the balloon by Balloon Pilot Captain Richard Davenport.

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.
