The RE/MAX balloon took to tethered flight with riders Peter, 86, and Diana, 84 – residents of The Royal Henley Retirement Community in St. Catharines. This initiative was part of the community’s Living List program, which grants “bucket list” wishes to its residents.

Local RE/MAX broker Bryan Grant, from RE/MAX Garden City, helped to coordinate the event and RE/MAX INTEGRA was happy to accommodate to the request.

The RE/MAX balloon is one of the most widely recognized symbols in North America and was first seen by spectators of the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival in 1978. In North America, there are approximately 100 RE/MAX Balloons engaged in promotional programs, with millions of people witnessing this strong corporate symbol each year as it flies high above them in the sky. The RE/MAX Balloon represents an excellent opportunity to create awareness and promote goodwill in the community, and takes thousands of people on flights each year.

As such a strong symbol, we love to see our happy homeowners enjoying the RE/MAX balloon as it flies above them. Sponsored by RE/MAX offices and agents, the RE/MAX balloon can be found at community and charity events across Canada. RE/MAX offers tethered hot air balloon flights—weather permitting—to thousands of people every year! If you spot the balloon, we want to see your photos! Get your cameras ready to go, and tag us on social media or share using #AboveTheCrowd!
