The October 21-23 event is organized by The Chamber (Schertz-Cibolo-Selma Area). Maggie Titterington, President and CEO of The Chamber, says 2020 is something of an asterisk year, due to the cancellation induced by the COVID-19 pandemic. But after years of experience on the production side of the event, she understands the logistics of getting the hot air balloons off the ground. Hot air balloon rides are tethered to the ground but wind conditions still need to be precise to ensure a safe experience for all. Titterington says winds can’t exceed 7 mph.
