We attended the Light Up Middletown this year. It was our first time going to this event. If you have never been to it, it is where they bring in hot balloons and when it turns dark they light all of the balloons up in a light show. They also had fireworks, rides for the kid, games, food and skydivers. There is a lot to see and do while there. They also offer tethered hot air balloon rides and helicopter rides.
This was also park of the Wounded Warriors weekend. It was really pretty to see the balloons in all the glow.
If Middletown has this next year, you should check it out. I am sure if you have kids they would love to see this.
