Each show is fully action-packed with plenty of comedy, action, and a high energy soundtrack. Athletes will fly as high as 20 feet above the ground performing death-defying single, double, and even triple flips as part of the act and extreme trampoline demonstrations.
 
Presented by the New Jersey Lottery, Flippenout has performed their heart-pounding entertainment for the NFL, NBA and the NCAA, as well as at fairs and festivals all over the world.
 
Flippenout will also be the official “starting gun” for Sunday morning’s Running with the Balloons 5K as the performers soar over 20 feet in the air to ring the starting bell for the race. 
 
You can catch their thrilling acrobatic stunt show in the Family Fun Pavilion throughout the Festival weekend.

"The Bullet" - David Smith
 
Known as “The Bullet,” David is heir to the throne of being the world’s most accomplished human cannonball, carrying on a great family tradition of being the highest and farthest flying cannonball of all time. From breaking the world distance record to blasting over incredible obstacles such as Ferris wheels, concert stages, even part of the Grand Canyon.
 
 
AeroSphere - Aerial Acrobat Spectacular
 
Our dazzling aerial performances aren’t limited to the 100 sport and special shaped balloons that will be taking to the skies over the weekend. Seventh-generation circus performer John Nock and his aerialist wife, Alexandra, present the AeroSphere Aerial Balloon Show in which Alexandra gracefully performed acrobatic maneuvers over the festival crowd while floating underneath a giant helium balloon.
