Maui Wowi Floats Into The Preakness Celebration Balloon Festival

Maryland’s annual celebration for the second leg of thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown, adds some Aloha Spirit as local Maui Wowi Franchisee glides his tiki cart into the Preakness Balloon Festival, serving fresh fruit smoothies and Kona coffee.

Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) May 11, 2013 - Maui Wowi Hawaiian gets airborne for the Preakness Celebration Balloon Festival, May 16-18 in Ellicott City, Maryland. Local Franchisee of the coffee and smoothie company, Mike Pyne, will be a first time vendor at the event, which he has been going to as a spectator since he was a young boy. This time around, Mike Pyne will be there enjoying the festivities and sharing the Aloha Spirit of Maui Wowi Hawaiian.

“I’ve been going to Preakness since I was 16 years old, more than half my life, so it’s exciting to get more involved and help bring some Aloha Spirit to Baltimore’s premier sporting event celebration for the second leg of the Triple Crown,” said Pyne.

The balloon festival will take place over three days and is one of many events that will celebrate the 138th running of the Preakness Stakes. The annual sporting event is the middle jewel of thoroughbred horse racing’s Triple Crown. The balloon festival will feature over 20 hot air balloons, vendors, crafts, and local entertainment.

Pyne will add to the excitement from behind his tiki hut style cart, as he blends up made-to-order fresh fruit smoothies and premium Hawaiian Kona blend coffee. He will have hot cups ready for the balloon launches that begin at 6:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and as the colorful balloons float through the air, he will be pouring tropical flavored smoothies for everyone to enjoy.

The event is free to the public and begins at 4 p.m. Thursday, May 16th at Turf Valley, a resort hotel located just outside of Baltimore. For more information about the event, please visit and to learn more about Maui Wowi Hawaiian or how to have them at your next event, visit
