A New Mexico blizzard could not stop us. We brought authentic, live experiences to Gallup’s Facebook audience.
The City of Gallup is host to the Red Rock Balloon Rally. Nearly 40 years old, this event began when four individuals wanted to share unique flying challenges offered in the incredible red rock formations east of Gallup, New Mexico. Now the second largest balloon rally in North America, nearly 200 balloons ascend annually.
Our plan was to arrive and broadcast different aspects of the rally live on Facebook. Each day we would feature a unique aspect of the event, even taking viewers on a full ride – live – across the rock formations. But when high winds and a blizzard zeroed in on the city, we left the revelry of the pilots and their crews to discover other ways Gallup is unique.
The videos below are what we broadcast live on Facebook.
