The 811 Balloon will travel across the country raising awareness about underground damage prevention. CGA Members will have the opportunity to book the Balloon for an appearance at their event. The 811 Balloon is on a dedicated path and timeline. Although weather will be a contributing factor to its appearances; every effort will be made to accommodate requests.
