This week on What's Up Wednesday, the Official Event Pin of Balloon Fiesta #50 is here and ready for you!
This year's event pin features three iconic balloons from the early years. Front and center is the balloon our founder Sid Cutter flew in the 1972 gathering. The roadrunner/coyote balloon was Sid's balloon in 1973 and the World Balloon was one of many "Worlds" that Sid built and flew recognizing the name of his company. World Balloon Championships was renamed World Balloon Corporation after AIBF Inc was created in 1976 to take over the production and presentation of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
The pin also features a raised 50 to celebrate the 50th Balloon Fiesta being held Oct. 1-9, 2022.
This pin is now available for purchase and we're sure the demand will be great. So don't delay in ordering yours today!
Returning to the store by popular demand this week is the 550 piece custom puzzle. Featuring a Victor Banta photo of balloons playing in the Rio Grande this puzzle has entertained puzzle fans for hours. Actually we've heard of a number of fans who have completed this puzzle, then framed it for use on their wall. You'll want to check out the collection of balloon related puzzles available. And just for readers, there is another puzzle in production that will be available soon.
Thanks for your support of Balloon Fiesta and May the 4th be with you!
