Bridgewater Marriott Hotel Celebrates Warren County Farmer's Fair and Balloon Festival

Hotel Near Raritan, NJ Offers Exclusive Access to the 77th Annual Fair and Hot Air Balloon Festival July 26th - August 2nd

BRIDGEWATER, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 07/02/14 -- Excitement soars this summer as the Bridgewater Marriott Hotel invites guests to a special celebration at the 77th annual Warren County Farmer's Fair, featuring the Hot Air Balloon Festival, July 26th through August 2nd. Located just moments from the event, the hotel provides guests with the perfect vantage point for taking part in this year's fair and festivities.

Now in its 77th year, the Warren County Farmer's Fair is a timeless occasion for families of the region, featuring fun foods, a traditional carnival midway, tractor pulls, and unique contests like the down-and-dirty Mud Bog Competition. This is the 14th year the fair has hosted the Hot Air Balloon Festival, as countless balloons take to the sky to form a truly mesmerizing sight.

Wednesday, July 30th, the Balloon Festival will hold the 8th Annual Bicycle Balloon Race, where courageous bikers strap lightweight bikes to the outside of a balloon's basket and hitch a ride, before setting off for a race back to the fairgrounds. Airhead Invader, the green monster hot air balloon, will again invade the County Fair this year, and the festival will also feature tethered rides and mass hot air balloon launches each evening.

Among other events held at this year's fair, guests can enjoy Demolition Derbies, Hay Bale Rolling Contests, Carnival Rides, traditional BBQ, Truck Pulls and more. The Home and Garden Building will have a variety of plants, vegetables, herbs and fruits on display, while the rest of the grounds will invite guests to browse an array of unique arts and crafts from the region.

Guests of the Warren County Farmer's Fair enjoy two events in one with a single admission allowing entrance to the fair and the balloon festival, each located only moments from the Bridgewater Marriot Hotel, near Raritan, NJ. Admission is just $7 per adult and $4 for children ages 5-12, while children 4 and under get in for free. Complimentary parking is also available onsite at the fairgrounds.
