May 23, 2013 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO – The Re/Max Hot Air Balloon will pay a June 3 visit to Rock Cut Elementary School, 7944 Forest Hills Road, Loves Park, Ill., where the balloon crew will present an interactive educational program developed and sponsored by the Re/Max real estate network in northern Illinois.

The Re/Max balloon has become a nationally recognized corporate symbol since it was created 35 years ago and then combined with the now familiar Re/Max “Above the Crowd!”® slogan. Today, the balloon enjoys great success in achieving both educational and promotional objectives, appearing frequently at festivals, parades and charity events.

The Re/Max balloon will be involved in more than 100 educational programs presented by its crew at schools across northern Illinois this year. The balloon visit to Rock Cut was arranged by Shari Siracusa, a broker with Re/Max Property Source in Rockford, Ill.

Three-hundred-sixty students at the school will learn about various aspects of ballooning, including its history and the scientific principles involved, and they will see a demonstration on how the balloon functions.

The program will be presented twice starting at 8:45 a.m. in the school gymnasium, giving all students a chance to participate. The 75-foot-tall balloon envelope will be inflated with cold air, permitting students to walk inside it. The presentation then will conclude outdoors with a demonstration of how the balloon basket and burners operate.

Also on hand to enhance the occasion will be a “cold air” version of the Re/Max Soaring Home Balloon, a house-like inflatable that has become a crowd favorite since being introduced a few years ago.
