For the first time ever, burton + BURTON® is inviting the public to view the one-of-a-kind balloon display at their 40th anniversary Ballooniversity® event on Sunday, August 14, from 2–5 pm.

Once again, The Classic Center is proud to host Ballooniversity, an industry convention created by burton + BURTON for balloon and floral professionals. Each Ballooniversity features an exciting theme, and for 2022, that theme is “The Future Is Ours”–a celebration of space and exploration. Balloon designers from around the world will create space-themed balloon art, from planets to rocket ships to aliens.

On Sunday, August 14, burton + BURTON invites the local community to view an out-of-this-world display of over 100,000 balloons in the Grand Hall at The Classic Center. This Balloon Showcase will also include live entertainers that children of all ages will love.

Admission to the Balloon Showcase is FREE. Donations are appreciated and will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens and Extra Special People (ESP). burton + BURTON will make a charitable contribution to both organizations and deliver balloon art to their local headquarters. 100% of all donations will go directly to these charities.
