Does this mean that everybody has a chance to actually ride the hot air bollon? How much does it cost for each person? Do we have to make reservation in advance?

To Curious,

The Balloon segment of the Carnival is wind and weather permitting.  Once the balloon is able to go up, it's then up to Mother Nature as to how long we'll be able to give tethered rides.  Safety is ALWAYS our number one concern first and foremost.  If the wind decides to pick up, then the balloon must come down.  This is a fundraiser for the Pine Glen Elementary PTO and the suggested donations are $5 for a child and $10 for an adult.  Rides will be given on a first come, first serve basis -- so be sure to show up early!  We're expecting a great crowd due to the response to our marketing efforts.  If you have further questions, feel free to contact me at 781-389-6184.

It's all up to Mother Nature!!!
