What's Up Wednesday September 6, 2023 # 84

Ken Tuley ·

This week on What's Up Wednesday, we're just 30 days away from "Burners On!" and that means the official program, another T-shirt, and stickers for everyone!

Let's start with the program. This is the definitive guide to Balloon Fiesta. Of course you'll find the balloon and pilot directory, with those pretty balloon pictures. There's an entire section of the 66th Gordon Bennett Gas Balloon event, an article on the annular eclipse that will be happening on the second Saturday of this year's event, and check out our story on all the books that have been written about Balloon Fiesta over the years. We'll even take a step back 50 years to check out the 1st World Hot Air Balloon Championship, which became the 2nd Balloon Fiesta. There's lot's more, you'll have to buy one to "read all about it!"

New clothing continues to arrive weekly as we quickly approach our October 7th start date. Featured this week is a lightweight, long-sleeve ivory colored T-shirt with a full size balloon colored with smaller balloons. This tee is full of very bright colors and has Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta with the dates of 1972-2023 below the balloon. We expect these to be very popular.

People love buying and receiving things and the affordability of stickers contributes to their growing popularity. And we have a number of custom stickers that you'll want to pick up to decorate your water bottles, laptops, tablets, cars and just about anything you own to mark it as yours. Check out the collection that features popular  special shapes, aliens (and other Area 51 references) or just the plain logo. We're sure you'll find at least 2 of these weatherproof stickers to your liking.

Next week on What's Up Wednesday, we'll review all the drinkware options available to you so you can stay hydrated in style.

Thanks for your support of Balloon Fiesta and Balloon Fiesta Stuff.
