New Jersey Balloon Festival by Barbara Dexter
It was a lovely 2 and a half hour ride to the festival. I was expecting an additional twenty minutes for parking but just plain wow is all I can say for the traffic. The crowd was friendly on the whole but the lines were very long for food and beverages. Don’t try to bring your own, as bags were searched on the way in.
The ascension of the balloons was worth the it.
For the geeks or the geek lovers at heart there were balloons in the shape of Yoda and Darth Vader.
For the folks like myself that grew up with the american diet there was the Wonder Bread balloon.
It was very picturesque and very crowded at the same time.
The New Jersey Balloon Festival continues for it’s final day of the season today. For information go to balloonfestival.com or simply get in the car and head for the Solberg Airport in Readington, NJ.
