If you live near the northeastern United States, you don't have to travel to Albuquerque, NM to attend a great balloon festival, we have 2 excellent Balloon Festivals right here in New Jersey.
Our family has attended both the Quick Chek Festival of Ballooning and the Warren County Farmers Fair and Hot Air Balloon Festival and loved both events, which take place annually. You'll find information and important links on this page to plan your day at one or both of the festivals.
If you have a balloon festival that takes place where you live, please let us know in the guestbook.
I hope you'll enjoy the pictures and things to follow, the happy face balloon used as an intro picture for the page is one of the pictures my husband took at the Quick Chek festival..there are more pictures below.
I'll do my best to keep you updated each year on QuickChek (easy to confuse the spelling with Quick Check or Quick Chek) Balloon Festival as well as the Warren County (NJ) Balloon Festival and Farmer's Fair, and any other New Jersey hot air balloon events.
