The JENNiRADIO team, including 14-year-old Jennifer Smart, the personality behind the format, will have a presence at the event all 9 days of Balloon Fiesta.

“I’m so excited to be in Albuquerque for my very first Balloon Fiesta! I’ve heard it’s a magical time here, and I just can’t wait. Look for the blue JENNiRADIO tent, and you’ll find us playing music, giving away prizes, and meeting people from the local community and out of town visitors,” Jennifer says. “We’re also helping the Albuquerque Little Theatre with their fundraiser for a new stage floor. Raffle entries can win one of a number of prizes, including an iPad, iPhone and more. We encourage people to buy tickets and support this wonderful local theatre.”
