You know NJPride - I've always wanted to see this and I still haven't. It seems like again this year I will have to pass on it. :(

One day you will need to see this event.

The launching of the balloons is a great sight to see.

Parking (and getting into/out of the area) is a pain in the neck though. :(

Otherwise the event is similar to a county fair with vendors, food and amusements on display for all visitors.

In more recent years the organizers have made traffic improvements including a shuttle bus from Raritan Valley College . My wife and I have taken back roads and I cant remember much of a problem . Either way a great event and worth the time . Next year is the 25th year it will be held . It is the largest summer time ballon festival in the country .:D
