    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.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    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.
    Sincerely,
    Anthony

    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 .
