Mesquite Gaming, owner of Casablanca Resort and Virgin River Hotel, will host the seventh annual Mesquite Balloon Festival Jan. 26–28. From wondrous hot air balloon launches each morning to impressive night glows, the Mesquite Balloon Festival is fun for the entire family all weekend long. The event is in need of volunteers to assist the balloon pilots with their morning launches. To register as a volunteer or for more information including a complete schedule of events, visit casablancaresort.com.
“Mesquite Balloon Festival is not just for fun for the spectators but for all involved and we work hard to ensure everyone has a memorable experience,” said Christian Adderson, corporate sales manager for Mesquite Gaming. “Each year, we see more and more balloons and increased attendance and we look forward to our continued growth with another great event this month.”
The Mesquite Balloon Festival kicks off at 7:30 a.m. each morning with a balloon launch at the Oasis parking lot. The event also features “candlestick glows” nightly at 6 p.m. where the balloons create an extraordinary light show and includes a champagne tasting inside the CasaBlanca Resort’s Skydome Lounge Saturday at 4 p.m.
Mesquite Gaming is seeking volunteers to assist with the morning balloon launches. Volunteers are essential to the successful operation of the event. Volunteers are needed Jan. 26–28, and volunteer opportunities include Friday, Saturday, or Sunday morning launches, or all three days. Volunteers must wear jeans, closed-toed shoes, and warm clothes, and while pilots do their best to provide rides for volunteers, rides are not guaranteed. Volunteers will receive an event tee shirt, a lapel pin, and coffee and donuts at the morning launches. For more information or questions or to register as a volunteer, call (888) 711-4653, email email@example.com, or register online at casablancaresort.com.
