It sure is starting to feel like Summer around So Cal. June Gloom is in full effect, the weather is getting warmer, and there are so many fun events taking place all around So Cal. This weekend we had the opportunity to check out one of those events, The Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival. I’ve always wanted to check it out and when Verizon FiOS asked me if I would like to have the opportunity to attend I jumped at the opportunity.
The Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival takes place every year during the last weekend in May. The festival features all of the amazing things the Temecula Valley has to offer. The festival is held at Lake Skinner and features great live entertainment(Daughtry and the Plain White T’s), amazing food, wine and beer paring, a kids fair, and of course beautiful hot air balloons. We arrived to the festival on Saturday afternoon and were in for quite the treat.
We also had the opportunity to check out the FiOS SoCal Experience. The Experience launched 2 years ago and in that short amount of time, Verizon FiOS has given 122,500 in grants and Verizon employees have provided more than 1300 volunteer hours to local So Cal charities.
The Fios So Cal Experience Team also lets you discover all that Verizon FiOS has to offer. We’ve become loyal customers and have FiOS Quantum TV at home and absolutely love it. Did you know that you could record 12 shows at one time with FiOS Quantum? You can learn all about what FiOS has to offer when the FiOS So Cal team comes to your neck of the woods.
FiOS SoCal is also currently hosting a Road Trip Pack Sweepstakes. Head over here to enter to win a Samsung Galaxy 4 Tablet, Skull Candy Headphones, and more. You can enter through June 7th.
After checking out the Experience, we had the opportunity to pretty much eat our way through the festival. We also were able to check out the balloon glow at dusk. About a dozen balloons are lit up and it’s an absolutely beautiful sight to behold. Like I said, I can’t wait to make this a yearly tradition. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to unofficially kick Summer off.
