Volunteers needed for balloon festival

Staff Writer

   Calling all volunteers.
   The Grenada Tourism Commission needs helpers to staff this year’s Balloons Over Grenada Festival.
   The event will be Aug. 21-23, at Grenada Lake, and according to Tourism Executive Director Samantha Hilmus, the commission is a little short-handed.
   “We could really use some more help, including good, strong boys to hold the balloons for the glow, the races and the rides,” said Hilmus.
   No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to help, Hilmus said. Men and women are welcomed to help with answering questions, directing folks where to go and generally helping out, she said.
   To volunteer contact the Grenada Tourism office at (662) 226-2060.
