Staff Report

RE/MAX Realtor Ian Maes gave students at Aspen Elementary School a special treat Friday afternoon. He brought the corporate hot air balloon to the school.

First introduced at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in 1978, the balloon stands seven stories tall. Today, the nearly 120 RE/MAX hot air balloons in operation comprise the largest fleet on the planet.

“I thought it would be fun for the kids and the balloon crew was able to give them a good education about how a hot air balloon works,” Maes said.

Maes can be reached at 505.412.1838 or visit his website.
