Do you love hot air balloons? The Plano Balloon Festival celebrates hot air ballooning annually by filling the skies with brilliant colors and shapes. Fun for the entire family awaits you, with other attractions including live entertainment, tethered balloon rides, the Texas Parachute Exhibition of sky-divers, and several marathons to participate in of varying skill levels. There’s even a Kid’s Fun Zone, and if you wait until the evening, a fireworks show.

The Plano Balloon Festival is a weekend event, starting September 22nd and lasting until Sunday the 24th. Just head to Oak Point Park in Plano, Texas to witness the colorful sights for yourself. Kids under 36” tall are free, with general admission being $5 a person. Seniors 65 and older get a $1 discount. Food vendors will also be available onsite for you to enjoy great food and drink as you walk among the balloons and enjoy the live entertainment. There will be a viewing area where you can watch the balloons as they take off, so make sure to bring blankets and lawn chairs!

Presale tickets for the Plano Balloon Festival go on sale September 1st, so make sure you bypass the line by snapping them up as soon as possible. We at Ewing Buick GMC love to pay attention to local happenings near our dealership and encourage people to take part in their community events, such as this one.

Buick is #1 Most Searched Brand on Google in 10 States

most searched Brand Buick - 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir

Recently, The Detroit Free Press published information it received from Google concerning auto brands and search data. As it turns out, the most searched brand on Google was, surprisingly, Buick. In the midst of a brand makeover, Buick has piqued the interest of Americans across the country, most noticeably in the Midwest, where Buick reigned supreme in a whopping 10 U.S. states. Of those ten states, most of them expressed the most interest in the Buick Enclave.

Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, the Dakotas, and Ohio were all most interested in the new Buick Enclave. Other nameplates that made it on the most-searched list included the Buick Encore in Wisconsin and the elegant Cascada soft-top convertible in Indiana. Meanwhile, as Buick surged ahead in Google searches, Honda – one of the top-selling brands in the U.S. with 791,000 units sold last year – didn’t reach the #1 spot in any U.S. state at all. And the Ford F-150, the best-selling vehicle in the ‘States for decades, didn’t pop up at all, either.

Google searches reflect what’s causing a buzz in the social sphere, and with Buick dropping a new ad campaign to more accurately show off its change in direction, people are definitely going to be curious. Marketing decisions like that are what made Buick the most searched brand on Google. Check Buick vehicles out today at Ewing Buick GMC to see what all of the buzz is about.
