- Ballooning with "The Beach Boys"
Hello everyone! Let's do the QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning featuring The Beach Boys on Sunday 28-Jul-2019. I will arrive at 12:30pm and set up an area for the group in the "free" section behind the paid seating in the concert area. I will bring a beach umbrella so I am easily found. The Beach Boys do not start until 3 pm, there are other acts beforehand. Feel free to show up anytime. There are also plenty of food, beer and craft vendors (no coolers are allowed and they do search your bags). After the concert we can move a short distance to the field and watch the balloon ascension at 6:30 pm. *Ascensions are wind / weather permitting I have copied a schedule of events from 12:30 pm on at the bottom of this page. Kindly note, after reading the below, if you still have questions, please visit the balloon festival website at http://www.balloonfestival.com/ Feel free to contact me as well, I will try and answer any questions you may have.
