The 40th annual New Jersey Lottery Festival of Ballooning @ Solberg Airport

July 28 @ 1:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The skies over Central Jersey will once again be filled with the awe-inspiring spectacle of up to 100 gigantic, colorful hot air balloons taking flight twice each day as the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America celebrates its 40th anniversary this summer.

Keeping with its storied history, the Festival is known for bringing in the best special shaped hot air balloons from around the world.

This year, whimsical and Instagram-worthy special shaped hot air balloons include:

* a new bright pink 65-foot-tall, 750-pound Lucky Pig from the New Jersey Lottery

* a 70-foot-tall replica of the very first hot air balloon flight complete with a sheep, a duck and a rooster (the first hot air balloon passengers)

* a pair of 110-foot-tall bumblebees who hold hands and kiss in mid-flight

* an 86-foot-tall Darth Vader and a 62-foot-tall Yoda (approved by LucasFilm)

* an 80-foot-tall, 70-foot wide old fashioned alarm clock

* a 100-foot-tall snowbird penguin
