Stephanie the Corporate Computer Babe’s Online Guide to Balloonfest 2012
We're constantly moving the wall here on KLAQ.com and Balloonfest weekend will be no exception. Actually, we have big plans for the site, bringing you every detail from the balloon launch at Santa Teresa Country Club Saturday Morning, to all the local bands rocking at Wet n Wild Waterworld to the headliners we're all stoked to see — Dead Sara, Buckcherry, P.O.D. and Hellyeah. Hell yeah! I'll be there, cracking the whip and making sure everyone keeps the wall moving all weekend long. Here's everything you and your phone need to know for Balloonfest 2012.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Instagram is for hipsters, but I'm from New York, I'm allowed Hipster tendencies. A bunch of us from KLAQ, myself included, will be Instagramming the heck out of Balloonfest and you don't even need the app to see all of our pics. All of our Balloonfest pics will pop up HERE as we take them all weekend long. Make sure to check back often so you don't miss a shot.
Wanna go backstage at Balloonfest? Like playing games? Who doesn't? We've hidden virtual Spyder-Pigs throughotu Wet N Wild for you to find. Find enough and you could meet the bands backstage. It's like hide-and-go-seek, but with booze and bands! Kinda awesome, right? Get the details HERE!
Will the Internet work from a hot air balloon? We don't know, but we're willing to find out. I'll be going up in a balloon early Saturday morning (gulp) and want to take you all with me. Since I'm pretty sure we won't all fit in the basket together, I'm doing to next best thing — taking the Q cam up with me. We're going to see how the Internet is in the skies above El Paso and will be streaming my ride to the Morning Show Q Cam Saturday at 6 a.m. You can watch it LIVE on Saturday HERE!
We'll be keeping you updated on what's going on at the balloon launch and at Wet N Wild Waterworld throughout the entire festival on KLAQ's Twitter and we want you to join in. We'll be using #qballoonfest to let you know everything you need to and want you to let us know what you're seeing by using the hashtag, too.
And if Twitter updates aren't enough for you, we'll be keeping the KLAQ Facebook page updated all weekend as well, with pics, interviews, everything you need to know. Not our fan? Go over and click that like button now! What are you waiting for? Don't make me beg. More than I just did.
Balloonfest hasn't even started yet, but we have tons of interviews, videos and music from the bands performing as well as tips and memories of past years all on our Ballloonfest page. This is also where we'll be sending all the awesome stuff we get this year, including video interviews with all the bands, pics of babes in bikinis we see walking around Wet N Wild Waterworld and my thoughts (if I survive) on going up in a balloon for the first time. For everything Balloonfest, you'll want to bookmark this page and check back often so you don't miss a thing!
