The success of our 2017 Paris Balloon and Music Festival was in large part of our volunteers. We appreciate volunteers who come out to the festival, meet new people and have a great time. Men, women, and young adults generously volunteer their time and energy to make sure the event runs smoothly and that our guests have an awesome time.

We are looking for volunteers for 2018 to help before, during and after the event. They provide guest services, balloon coordination and safety, set-up and logistics, The variety of needs allows just about any person, with any skills, talents or interests, to experience the Balloon Festival from a new perspective.
