Featuring more than 100 hot air balloons from around the world, live concerts and non-stop affordable family entertainment, the Festival is a must on everyone’s list of Things-to-Do this summer.
The festival features the awe-inspiring spectacle of colorful balloons taking flight twice each day over the scenic Hunterdon County countryside, headlining concerts from Grammy Award winners, Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famers and the latest teen sensations, children’s amusement rides, age-appropriate family entertainment and attractions, the Running with Balloons 5K race and Family Fun Run, interactive exhibits from leading consumer brands, and hundreds of arts and crafts and food vendors.
Hot air balloon rides available. Book Rides early; they sold out all flights in 2013.
Balloon rides are $225 per person in the morning and $250 per person in the evening.
You will need to purchase a general admission ticket as well in order to get on the festival grounds.
