Balloon Festival July 23-25
New Jersey Festival of Ballooning 2010
Here’s a fun New Jersey event you and your family can attend next weekend, and a chance to show your kids some hot air without attending a Hoboken City Council meeting!
The 2010 QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning – in Readington, NJ from July 23rd to the 25th!

Tons of stuff to keep everyone interested throughout the festival. Fireworks on Friday night, the “balloon glow” on Saturday night – and 125 balloons on display.

You can buy tickets in advance until 7/22 at midnight ($17 for adults, $7 for kids) – or on site the day you visit ($25 for adults, $10 for kids). Premium tickets for the concerts are also available – and get you access to the “clean” bathrooms and VIP booze section. Balloon rides are costly: $200 per person. Tickets can also be purchased by calling (800)HOT-AIR9 or at any Quick Chek store.
Has anyone ever been to this event? Worth the hour-long drive?
