Puget Sound Balloon Festivals
The Balloon Festival
placed Sequim on the world map
There are two huge factors that made Sequim known worldwide, more than it is : ). The first was the website became the second most popular balloon website in the world and the most popular "single event" in the Northwest. Out of 330 million websites in the world, the Sequim Balloon Festival site maintained a yearlong average of 74,148. So out of the 330 million we were in the top 75,000.
The second reason we reached worldwide notoriety was the balloon pilots, they get around and they talk. Many of them had Sequim listed in their top 5 places to fly of all time.
