Hot Air Balloon Rides at Major Tasting Concert

(La Porte, IN) - Hot air balloon rides will be part of a major upcoming event outside La Porte.  The famous Remax balloon is coming to Red, Wine and Brew.


The annual tasting event featuring country music acts Eddie Montgomery from Montgomery Gentry, his brother John Michael Montgomery, nephew Dillion Carmichael, and Walker Montgomery is scheduled July 2 in an open field along Johnson Road near 500 West.


Carrie Garwood, one of the organizers of the event that raises money for local first responders, said tethered rides will be offered on the Remax balloon.  “They’ll be doing I believe like sunset trips.  That should be an awesome view and we’re really thankful for that partnership with that local Remax office,” she said.


The Remax balloon is seven stories high.  It started showing up in commercials nationwide about the real estate agency in 1978.


This years Red, Wine and Brew will be the first time these four members of this  legendary country music family have played together at the same event.  For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Red, Wine, and Brew website (click here) or call 219-362-3312.
