Energizer Bunny® Hot “Hare” Balloon Tour

The Energizer Bunny® Hot “Hare” Balloon soars, every year, over America’s most-beautiful landscapes. This year, in support of the Energizer partnership with the National Park Foundation, the Energizer Bunny® Hot “Hare” Balloon crew is helping to make sure some of those national treasures are preserved for future generations to enjoy.
 
On his way to some of his favorite balloon festivals, the Energizer Bunny® Hot “Hare” Balloon will stop in cities that are home to some of America’s most loved national parks. As part of each visit, the balloon crew will host a volunteer event, raise awareness for supporting our parks and educate the public on how they can get involved. now that’s positivenergy
