Here's another shot from the New Jersey Balloon Festival held last Summer at Solberg Airport . None of the balloons got off the ground and most did not even inflate due to the strong wind conditions. A few of the braver pilots tried inflating their balloons so the crowds could see them but none of the balloons actually took off. The Pepsi Football balloon was the most ambitious, inflating completely and getting a few feet off the ground even though it was only for a brief time.
I really enjoyed seeing these hot air balloons and I'm looking forward to going again sometime. Hopefully I'll see them actually flying next time!
