Do you mean the one in October at Long Branch? Or another one?

I've had so much fun at Long Branch's Balloon Festivals! However, this year, since they've been unable to actually fly the balloons for the past few years due to weather conditions, they're changing the emphasis to Wine and Music (which have always been delightful!) and *Pumpkin Chunking and Kite Flying*. Plus, the crafters are returning (and I've purchased some really nice jewelery at a great price).

Don't pass up the Long Branch festival in October, balloons or not, it'll be a lot of fun.And you might also want to attend the Flying Circus Aerodrome in Bealeton, VA (Northern Virginia) on August 18th and 19th. There *will* be hot air balloons.
