Up, Up, and Away: The QuickChek NJ Festival of Ballooning 

For all the New Jersey and tri-state dwellers, the QuickChek NJ Festival of Ballooning is one event of the summer you can’t miss! With live music, spectacular views, great food, and activities for every age group-it’s the perfect day out for squad and fam alike. You can tour the inside of a hot air balloon, take a ride up if you have that kind of cash, and even witness a sparkly spectacle of a woman get shot out of a cannon. Why does she do this you may be wondering? It runs in the family of course. There are plenty of vendors on location to satisfy even the fiercest of munchies. Our first indulgences were fresh strawberry banana smoothies in fun twisty souvenir cups.2 cases of brain freeze later, we upgraded to a Philly cheesesteak and a cheeseburger.The vendors offered cheeseburgers, hot dogs, Italian sausages, gyros, falafel, crab cakes, funnel cakes, zeppoles, fried oreos, and fresh squeezed lemonade. With happy bellies, we eagerly awaited the  ascension of the balloons.Pandas, sailor ducks, and smileys oh my!Last but not least, this event offers plenty of cutesy photo-ops such as this. Thanks for checking out our post, we hope to see y’all at events in the future!
