HOW CAN I HELP?
The National Balloon Classic, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization relies on hundreds of volunteers to make the 9-day event a success. Our volunteers are an essential and vital component to the success of the event. Volunteers help in all areas including balloon chase crews, public information, gate hosting, ticket taking, hospitality, gift shop attendants, clean up crew, and parking assistants.
Balloon chase crews help the pilot inflate and deflate his/her balloon. Being part of a chase crew is very exciting and provides a truly up close and personal hot air balloon experience. Chase crew volunteers receive training prior to the event and must be 16 years or older or accompanied by an adult.
