I’m so excited to be in Albuquerque for my very first Balloon Fiesta! I’ve heard it’s a magical time here, and I just can’t wait. While you’re visiting Balloon Fiesta, I hope you will come to the Balloon Museum’s Lighter Than Air Fair. I’ll be there with the AM 1240 JENNiRADIO team all nine days, playing music, giving away prizes, and meeting listeners like YOU!

We’ll also be selling raffle tickets to benefit the Albuquerque Little Theatre. We’re helping them raise money for a new stage floor, and your entry could win one of many prizes, including an iPad 2, iPhone and more! Just look for the blue JENNiRADIO tent on the Balloon Museum grounds, and you can do your part to support local theatre.

The Lighter Than Air Fair at the Balloon Museum features all kinds of fun for all ages, from 6am – 2pm each day, October 1st through 9th. Admission is free. If you have a combo ticket to the Balloon Fiesta and the Balloon Museum, make sure you scan it at the museum, to be entered for additional prizes.

I hope to see you there!
