Presque Isle Fire Department is continuing to host our Annual Hot Air Balloon Flight Raffle. The winner of this raffle, will receive a hot air balloon flight for two passengers at the 2019 Crown of Maine Balloon Festival (a $400 value). Once the winner is drawn, they will be notified and their information will be passed on to the COMBF committee where they can schedule their flight. Proceeds of this raffle go to the paid call member’s general fund, which we use for projects such as restoring the antique fire engine and providing local community scholarships.
Tickets are $5.00 for 1 or $10.00 for 3. Tickets are available at the station, from members of the department, and we also will be at Rocking at Riverside, and Thursdays on Sweden Street.
Note: Hot air balloons are at the mercy of the weather and flights are very weather contingent. In the event that the scheduled flight is canceled due to safety concerns, the winner will be provided the $400 in lieu of the flight. Several pilots stay in the area after the festival is over and can usually be scheduled before they travel out of the area.
