RE/MAX hot air balloon at Reading375 Celebration Grand Finale

Reading, MA — It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s a giant, seven-story-tall hot-air balloon! 

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, will tether (weather permitting) at the Birch Meadow Elementary School, 27 Arthur B Lord Dr., Reading, on Saturday, June 15th from 6 – 8 p.m. 

The RE/MAX Balloon visit is sponsored by RE/MAX Encore, as part of the Reading375 anniversary celebration. Philip Rushworth, Chair of the Reading 375 Steering Committee noted, “We’re looking forward to a fun-filled day of community events on June 15 to celebrate Reading 375. We’re thrilled to have the REMAX/Encore Balloon as part of the festivities. Not many people have had the opportunity to get up in a hot air balloon – now Reading residents will get that chance.”

RE/MAX has the world’s largest fleet of hot air balloons, scheduling appearances at community events, office openings, and educational activities across the globe. The most recognized symbol in real estate, and one of the Top 10 most instantly recognized corporate logos in the world, the hot air balloon is symbolic of superior service, and the freedom RE/MAX Encore agents have in developing their own business.

RE/MAX pilot Chris Mooney adds, “RE/MAX agents are known for being very active and generous volunteers in their local communities and Reading 375 is exactly the type of celebration that we love to support with our iconic balloon and tethered rides.”
