The 75th Warren County Farmers’ Fair in Phillipsburg, NJ, has concluded last Saturday. There were all kinds of fun-filled activities from tractor pull, demolition derby to corn eating contest.
But I admit that I was there mainly for the balloon festival.
This post also serves as my entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth, Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post: Splendid, as well as the new monthly challenge by Marianne, CBBH Photo Challenge: Looking Up. Now call me GREEDY!
I watched the balloon GROW.
And off it flew.
It was enchanting to observe the ballooning process.
There were around 40 balloons at the festival.
Another event that was taking place was the Bicycle Balloon Race. So what is a bicycle balloon race? The bicyclist goes up in the balloon with their bike strapped to the balloon basket. After the pilot flies past a particular landmark, they land and let the bicyclist out. The bicyclist then must race back to the Fairgrounds. Whatever team makes it back first, in the shortest amount of time from launch to finish line, wins.

It was old-fashioned fun at the Warren County Farmer’s Fair. See you again next year.
