Foolish Pleasure Hot Air Balloon Rides
In addition to her regular flight preparations, Foolish Pleasure Hot Air Balloon Rides’ co-owner Lorrie Ewer in certain circumstances checks off a second midflight list: whether or not her passengers take each other, to have and to hold, for as long as they both shall live. As an ordained officiant, she can legally conduct marriage ceremonies beneath the teal, pink, and cerulean balloon that she and her husband, Dan, initially bought to fly for pleasure but have since turned into a thriving business.
The Ewers float passengers over the area’s most scenic vistas, such as the Tucson Mountains, Avra Valley area, and Saguaro National Park, many of which boast views of local wildlife. After the flight, Dan will tell a story of the history of ballooning and Lorrie will email each person a set of photos taken during the trip.
