Giant Hot Air Balloon to Appear at St. George Elementary School


Houston, TX – March 13, 2014-It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s a giant, seven-story tall hot-air balloon on my kid’s elementary school playground!

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 St. George Elementary School, 5430 Hidalgo Street, on Thursday, March 13 at approximately 7:00 am to illustrate the principles of thermodynamics (hot air rises) to students.

“This is one of the most exciting presentations we’ve had during my tenure here,” said Science Teacher Susan Smith. “Thai Klam, a REALTOR with RE/MAX 360 arranged this “How Hot Air Rises” program for us, and the kids are really looking forward to seeing a demonstration of what we’ve been studying.”

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 agents have in developing their own business.

“We’re encouraging kids to bring their parents, and parents to bring their cameras,” Smith continued. “The balloon pilot is a skilled aviator, but is also a great entertainer and educator. He’ll gather the kids around to demonstrate the mechanisms that launch and navigate the balloon, as well as a brief history of mankind’s progress in achieving powered flight.”
