The pilots of the Carolina BalloonFest come from all over the US. These pilots are dependent on the help of local community volunteers to help with the ground crew requirements of operating a hot air balloon.
This year we are planning on great weather and we have more sport and special shape balloons participating in the festival than ever before. This has increased the demand for volunteer crew members.
If you are interested in experiencing ballooning first hand by crewing for a hot air balloon please contact the Carolinas BalloonFest Crew Coordinator, Daniel Sasser at 843-819-0757 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
