Have you ever wondered how they get hot air into a hot air balloon? Or what it would be like to see over 20 hot air balloons lift into the sky or what a night glow looks like? Well now is your chance.
Experience Kissimmee is proud to host the Kissimmee Blue Skies Silver Spurs Festival, May 31st – June 2nd, 2013 at Formosa Gardens and Osceola Heritage Park.
As part of our host city responsibilities we are recruiting volunteers. We need Team Kissimmee to assist the flight crew in the morning with prepping the hot air balloons and launching them into the air. Then assist the flight crew with packing the balloons back up. Or if morning isn’t your thing, you can work with the flight crew to help get the balloons ready for their evening night glow.
As a Team Kissimmee volunteer you will receive an official Team Kissimmee t-shirt, preferred parking pass, and meals (when applicable). You will also be enrolled in the Team Kissimmee Volunteer Program that will entitle you to earn prizes based on the number of hours worked.
