Festival of Ballooning in New Jersey (July 27-29, 2012)

"What better way to experience ballooning and The Quick Chek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning, than taking a balloon ride? Join the other 125 balloons ascending into the sky and experience "Love at First Flight!" /http://www.balloonfestival.com/balloons/rides/
Modern hot air balloons, with an onboard heat source, were pioneered by Ed Yost beginning in the 1950s which resulted in his first successful flight on October 22, 1960. The first modern day hot air balloon to be built in the United Kingdom (UK) was the Bristol Belle in 1967. Today, hot air balloons are used primarily for recreation, and there are some 7,500 hot air balloons operating in the United States. The first tethered balloon in modern times was made in France at Chantilly Castle in 1994 by Aérophile SA /http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot_air_ballooning/
