CORNWALL – A man behind several well-known Cornwall events will be at the helm of the city’s signature hot air balloon festival.

Terry Muir is the new chairman of Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off, taking over from Jason Jesmer, who has stepped down from the board of directors.

Muir is known for leading the Cornwall Santa Claus Parade as well as founding Ribfest.

The Kinsmen and Optimist Club member wants to bring some stability to the province’s only hot air balloon festival and is already planning some changes and improvements.

Those would include new ticket prices that would probably be more than the specially discounted 20th anniversary tickets last year but would still remain affordable.

The 21st edition of Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off is scheduled for July 9-12, 2015 in Lamoureux Park.
