📣#committeeintroductions #meetourpeopleMeet Renee Denton James, owner of Insurance Specialists. Renee (pictured with her husband, Darryl) has been working tethered rides for 10 years! She has been responsible for the tethered ride field since they began at the festival in 2011. Renee says she was ‘hooked the first night.’ – “Most people are so super excited to go up it rubs off. It’s fun to be a part of someone’s bucket list or be sure that proposal goes off without a hitch. And the kids… their eyes and expressions are worth it all.” This past year was the first time Renee got to take a full balloon flight – “It was remarkable and I hope I get the opportunity to fly again.” 🎈 See MoreSee Less
