Fun Event Idea Featuring New Hot Air Balloon Props!

Gentlemen start your engines, Ladies kindly remove your hats! This last weekend, PJ Hummel & Co. had the opportunity to partner with Tacoma’s Rotary 8 for The Great Race: an evening filled with delicious dining and racy auction action, all the while supporting a great cause! It was held in the Bicentennial Pavilion at the Hotel Murano. Highlights included a favorite new prop: a ten foot round hot air balloon! We have five of these now – this is a versatile prop that would also work well for a Wizard of Oz theme. Other highlights were our Lady Liberty statue, representing New York, and our fifteen foot high Eifel Tower on the Paris stage. The event also included a vintage race car from the LeMay Museum Collection

A ten foot hot air balloon fills the skyline of the cavernous hall.

And they’re off! Lady Liberty guides the racers on their way.
The stage was embellished with a fifteen foot high steel Eifel Tower replica.

  1. Hello,

    Am looking into a way of creating a giant hot air balloon prop for an event but seem to have gotten stuck. If you can share any ideas on how to create this would be highly appreciated!
