Last year Quick News gave readers coverage of The Hot Air Balloon Race from behind the scenes, a perspective never seen before in New Haven.

This Saturday, September 22 we are going a step further by providing quicker, up to the minute details, and for the first time we are adding Quick Text Alerts sponsored by New Haven Lumber sent right to your phone.

Signing up is easy.  You can text the word “quickto 25827 or sign up online.

Every year, spectators continuously ask the same question, “When will the balloons launch?”  Readers will have the answer to this question at their fingertips by easily accessing all of the information from your smartphone or signing up for Quick Text Alerts.

No more wondering if or when the balloons will launch.  Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for additional information as well as photos throughout the day.

And of course you can expect a Live Video Feed brought to you by New Haven Lumber directly from the QuickNewHavenNews Hot Air Balloon.
