Re/Max Hot Air Balloon at CarmelFest on July 4th


At seven stories tall, the Re/Max Hot Air Balloon grabs attention wherever it flies. On this Fourth of July, the balloon will fly at the CarmelFest Independence Day celebration.


Weather permitting, the hot air balloon will be tethered in the grassy area on the north side of the Festival (north of the Carmel Fire Station).

A hot air balloon tether is when the balloon is inflated and anchored to the ground at three fixed points. In a tether ride, passengers go up and come back down in the balloon to the same anchored point.

First introduced at the Albuquerque Galloon Fiesta in 1978, the Re/Max balloon was designed to represent Re/Max network’s “Above the Crowd” commitment to quality. Today nearly 120 Re/Max Hot Air Balloons in operation comprise the largest fleet on the planet.

Tethered rides will be given at CarmelFest on July 4th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
