Eyes will be turned to the skies as the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America is back.

The 38th annual New Jersey Lottery Festival of Ballooning returns this weekend in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.

The annual event was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic, which was the first year since 1983 that the festival didn't take place.

WFMZ's Ali Reid was at Solberg Airport in Readington Township for 69 News at Sunrise with a preview of the event.
