If I weren’t going to Comic-Con this year, the only other place I could imagine being that weekend is the New Jersey Festival of Ballooning. It’s just a great (and inexpensive) way to spend a day, and learn about something I knew very little about. There’s also heaps of great freebies from vendors trying to get buzz on new products. Last year I even got free Mojitos to take on my balloon ride, along with great photos, and video.
Kenny Loggins is helping to wrap the event with a free concert on Sunday, July 27 at 3:00 p.m. He’ll be performing some Loggins & Messina classics like Danny’s Song and Your Mama Don’t Dance, along with signature solo tracks including Come Celebrate Me Home and the Grammy-winning hit This Is It.
July 25-27, 2008
Readington, New Jersey
