READINGTON TWP. – The 38th annual New Jersey Lottery Festival of Ballooning in Association with PNC Bank has been rescheduled to take place the weekend of October 16 to 18 at Solberg Airport due to ongoing concerns surrounding the coronavirus.
Traditionally, the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America has taken place over the last weekend in July.
“The safety and well-being of our patrons, balloon pilots, concert headliners, partners, vendors, staff and the overall community are our foremost concern,” said Festival Executive Producer Howard Freeman. “While Gov. Murphy hasn’t entirely lifted the public health emergency, we are hopeful we can come together in the fall to celebrate the magic of hot air ballooning and that the festival will be a part of the recovery and healing process.”
