2018 Family Fun Center Entertainment Lineup!
 
With many different shows and activities going on all day long,
the QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning is proud to offer
NON-STOP FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT to keep you busy!
 
OUR LINE UP OF FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT IS BEING UPDATED ALL THE TIME, CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY:
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.
 
Next up: a world-record attempt by soaring over a hot air balloon when he performs at the 36th annual QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning in Association with PNC Bank!
 
“Before he even climbs down the barrel of his 34-foot-long cannon, David has a big net to fill,” said Festival Executive Producer Howard Freeman. “His sister, Jennifer “The Cannon Lady” Smith, has been the most popular attraction we’ve ever had. He has his sights set high as he’ll try to launch himself over a balloon.”

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.
 
 
Jennifer “The Cannon Lady” Smith, one of just three known female human cannonballers in the world and one of the Festival’s most popular attractions ever. The 5-foot-2 inch blonde was shot 125 feet in the air out of a 27-foot-long cannon over the Festival grounds, over a hot air balloon. Key Wilde & Mr. Clarke: click HERE to hear their music!
