Countdown to festival fun:

Kid’s Club Offers Children A Vip Experience

April 18, 2013

The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning and the Bridgewater Commons shopping mall are once again offering children the unique experience of being part of the action at this year’s Festival.


Bridgewater Commons will be sponsoring the Festival’s Kid’s Club, which allows children ages 12 and under to get up-close-and-personal with over 100 hot air balloons. Each member of the Kid’s Club will receive one children’s general admission ticket to the Festival and an invitation onto the launch field during one of the scheduled evening mass hot air balloon ascensions (when accompanied by one adult guest).


In addition, five lucky Bridgewater Commons Kid’s Club members will be chosen to be honorary Launch Directors (one per ascension), where they will be invited to the pre-launch pilot briefing and give the official launch directions to the pilots prior to lift-off!


“It’s always been about the children,” said Festival Executive Producer Howard Freeman. “We created our Kid’s Club to make their Festival experience even more memorable and we look forward to introducing the next generation to the magic of ballooning.”


“We are very excited to continue to be part of such a great community event,” said Amy Harris, Marketing Manager for Bridgewater Commons & The Village. “We are certain many of our shoppers will want to join this year’s Kid’s Club and take advantage of all the extras that are available through this great opportunity.”  


Each member of the Kid’s Club will also receive an exclusive Kid’s Club T-shirt; an official Kid’s Club membership card; the opportunity to attend a hot air balloon tutorial with an official pilot; and a “Taste of QuickChek” Festival goody-bag.


This unforgettable experience is available for just $15 through June 28 ($18 from June 29-July 15).
