KID’S CLUB OFFERS CHILDREN A VIP EXPERIENCE
The Quick Chek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning and the Bridgewater Commons shopping mall are 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 up to 125 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!“For us, it’s all about the children,” said Festival Executive Producer Howard Freeman. “We created our Kid’s Club to make their Festival experience even more memorable. We look forward to introducing the magic of ballooning to a whole new generation.” “We are very excited to be a 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 the Kid’s Club and take advantage of all the extras they can receive.”
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 Quick Chek” Festival goody-bag.
This unforgettable experience is available for just $17.50.“Bridgewater Commons offers unique shopping, dining and entertainment experiences,” said Freeman. “Their sponsorship of our Kid’s Club is going to allow shoppers the opportunity to provide another wonderful new experience for their children.” For further information or to purchase Kid’s Club tickets, please visit www.balloonfestival.com.
