PALA – Pala Casino Spa Resort announced its sponsorship of this year’s Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival. Pala will be a title sponsor of the annual event taking place Friday to Sunday, June 3-5, at Lake Skinner Regional Park. As a family friendly event, there will be something for everyone to enjoy, including hot air balloons, wine tastings, craft breweries, camping, entertainment and more.

“Pala Casino and the Pala Band of Mission Indians have a long-standing history of supporting our local communities,” Coley McAvoy, representative for Pala Casino Spa Resort, said. “We are honored to sponsor this year’s highly anticipated Balloon & Wine Festival to support the many wonderful Temecula Valley wineries and businesses.”

Live entertainment will be a highlight of the event all weekend long. As Southern California’s Entertainment Capital, Pala Casino will sponsor the main stage at the festival, featuring chart topping artists from a variety of genres.

“We are excited to bring back the Balloon & Wine Festival after a two-year hiatus, and are even more thrilled to introduce Pala Casino as the title sponsor of this year’s festival,” Kellie Cantrell, executive director of the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival, said.
