Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival Wins 3 More Awards

The Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival won three more awards recently including a first place Celebration Award for the 2018 event at the California/Nevada Festivals and Events Association (CalFest) Convention January 25, 2019. The first-place award was for the “Best Press Kit.”

The press kit also won a Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Acapella award recently and the Festival’s Television Broadcast campaign won a PRSA Polaris award (top award) last November.
Celebration Awards are given each year to events for outstanding accomplishments in a variety of areas. Over 300 members belong to the organization including cities, chambers of commerce and fairs.

Collectively the organization represents more than 4,000 events in California and Nevada. Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival competes against large events like the Gilroy Garlic Festival and the Sausalito Art Festival.

Melody’s Ad Works, Inc. created the winning press kit and television broadcast campaign. The Festival also won two International Festivals and Fairs Association top honor Gold Pinnacle awards last September for Best Media Relations Campaign and Best Press Kit. A silver award was given to the Festival’s promotional rack card.

The 2019 Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival is set for May 31-June 2, 2019 at Lake Skinner Recreation Area. Each year the event presents the finest assets of the Temecula Valley with premium wine tasting, hot air balloons in the mornings and evenings, and top entertainment on two stages.
