We took one of our famous “day-trips” and had an amazing afternoon at the 27th Annual Quick Check Festival of Ballooning in Readington, NJ. This year’s festival took place July 24-25-26.
We went on Sunday afternoon thinking we would be safe from storms (according to online weather site). Then, after driving nearly 2hrs and only about 15 minutes away fromSolberg Airport the skies opened with penny size hail, rain and heavy winds. Then, thankfully the sun peaked out and we were able to enjoy the balloons!
How many times have you been driving down the road and see a balloon fly overhead? Well seeing nearly 30 balloons being inflated and lift into the sky at once is amazing!
Then I have to tell you how mesmerised I was with Runakuna – traditional music from Latin America – this man was amazing! Of course I couldn’t resist purchasing the CD – take a listen I think you will enjoy it too!
