Paper Takes Flight Registration News #1
Mark your calendar - 2019 Registration begins August 30th and ends September 13th!
The Balloon Explorium, in observation of Montgolfier Week, is planning "Paper Takes Flight 2019". As it has for the last number of years, it will be held at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum on Thursday, November 14th, 2019 and Tuesday, November 19th, 2019. We have mailed out postcards to the Albuquerque schools so look for yours in the mail.
Like last year, because we are holding this event on two days, you will need to indicate your 1st and 2nd preference for which day you wish to attend. Please - all classes at the same school pick the same day.
We do need advance registration so that we can arrange for transportation and ensure that we can inflate and launch all of the balloons. This is necessary to ensure a successful event. Registration will open August 30th. We are inviting fifth grade classes in Albuquerque to register, construct tissue paper balloons and bring them to the Museum to fly at “Paper Takes Flight 2019”.
Our space is limited and like previous years we will again be using an online registration followed by a random drawing. If you are interested in participating in “Paper Takes Flight 2019” complete the online form by 5:00 pm on September 13th. You will be notified by 5:00 pm on September 20th if you were chosen and for which day. If you have questions, call 980-1922 or check here for additional information.
PLEASE read our Paper Takes Flight FAQ page if you have questions.
