Annual Balloon Festival: New Location, New Name!

Knoxville, Tennessee: (March 2015)

The Bingham Group, a Knoxville based, full-service marketing communications firm, prides themselves on creating impressive work, but they also enjoy being able to give back to surrounding communities. The Monroe Life Magazine, a successful in house publication of The Bingham Group, is proud to announce that their annual balloon festival has a new location, new name, and is benefitting a new organization this year. The Muscadine Balloon Fiesta benefitting CASA Monroe will be held September 25th & 26th at Tsali Notch Vineyard in Madisonville, Tennessee.

CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) is a national charity organization with a local office in Madisonville, Tennessee. Volunteers speak up for children in the court system who have been neglected, abused or abandoned, and provide a fresh perspective to the juvenile court system as they ensure that children do not receive any further abuse from an overburdened child-welfare system.

The Bingham Group is excited to bring back the same lively festival with over 20 hot air balloons, kids zones, tethered hot air balloon rides, carnival food, concerts, balloon glows, and family fun to Tsali Notch Vineyard, the largest muscadine vineyard in Tennessee. Surrounded by spectacular views of The Great Smoky Mountains and the Cherokee National Forest, this 200 plus acre location is perfect for visitors that come to the annual event, and many new first time goers!

We look forward to seeing you on September 25th & 26th at Tsali Notch Vineyard!
