For the 36th time, up to 100 balloons add their colors to the sky over the festival grounds during the weekend-long QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning. The balloons take flight during five mass ascensions at rising breaking of dawn and and falling of dusk—expansive balloons glistening with the first and last of the day's rays bouncing on their curved edges.
But that isn't the weekend's only entertainment. It also hosts vendors and arts-and-crafts, thrill acts, and family entertainment galore. At its Main Stage, it presents hard-rocking performances at night by Andy Grammar, Life ouse, and Creedence Clearwater Revisited with a daytime performance by Laurie Berkner for the kids.
