2016 North-East Jamboree Hot Air Balloon Festival Announced

Mike Tassinari sent us information for the summer gathering of the North-East Jamboree Group.  This gathering will take place in Wakefield, Rhode Island at the South County Hot Air Balloon Festival.  The festival runs Friday, July 22nd through Sunday, July 24th at the University of Rhode Island Athletic Fields.


Here is Mike’s information on the gathering:

“The cost for the gathering is $75 for two people for the weekend.  That includes camping and admission to the Balloon festival.  There are no hook-ups of any kind, so you will have to depend on your camper’s systems for the weekend.
