Carolina Balloon Fest

 

The Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon participated in the Carolina Balloon Fest this past weekend in Statesville, NC.

On Friday morning, there was a media flight which took place near the intersections of I-40 and I-77. There was a lot of exposure on both interstates during the morning rush hour.

On Friday evening, the Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon flew a sponsor flight over downtown Statesville, also during the evening rush hour, for a large amount of additional exposure. A good crowd was on hand.

 

The Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon enjoyed another good flight Saturday morning across downtown Statesville and along I-40.

 

The Saturday evening flight was cancelled due to some gusty winds. With a crowd of over 10,000 spectators in attendance, the Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon was inflated and stood alone in the crowd with all eyes on it only. A balloon glow followed with our balloon front and center.

 

Sunday morning there was a final competition flight in the Statesville area with the Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon being only 3 of 56 balloons to be competitive, making it to the festival site as a crowd favorite.

 

On all of the scheduled flights, the festival site is also home of several NASCAR team hangers. The Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon was in the air during 3 of the 4 flights as such team owners and crew for Jimmy Johnson, Greg Biffle and Dale Earnhardt Jr. were able to see the balloon as they flew out of the airport on their way to the race in Talladega.

 

The Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon is always a crowd favorite at all events it attends.

 

This was the last scheduled event of 2014 for the Jasper Engines and Transmissions Balloon.
