Balloon Post covers

The Edmonton Balloon Club, in a salute to the Province of Alberta, carried Balloon Post on two ceremonial flights.

Flight number one launched from Laurier Park in Edmonton on August 27th, 1980 and carried 3,000 First Day Covers bearing the Province of Alberta's 75th Anniversary Commemorative Stamp. 

Flight number two launched from the same location on September 1st, 1980.  On board were 3,000 Commemorative Covers marking the official date of Alberta's entry into Confederation.

Canada Post participated in both events by providing a special cancellation designed for these hot air balloon flights.
