Johnny's Summary

I love balloon festivals, and this one has a "hot air balloon glow" at dark! Fireworks, petting zoo, pony rides, jugglers, and a "cannon lady"? Is that a lady shaped like a cannon, or does she shoot out of a cannon? Call in advance to reserve your balloon ride. Rt 95S to ex 9. Rt 4S, 10.4mi joins Rt 1, then Rt 138W. - , 3 Keaney Road, Kingston, RI.
