When is a balloon festival not (just) a balloon festival?
That’s a tough question, especially when a huge yearly event is billed as such (I mean, it’s called the Festival of Ballooning, after all) and there certainly are plenty of hot-air balloons to be displayed.

Of the 30 years, Quick Chek has been a major sponsor for 20. And for the first time, Patch is partnering with the festival to get you in at a great price.
