Hoboken skies to feature appearance from world's largest American flag on Astini News

The skies over Hoboken will feature a special patriotic guest tomorrow morning.

In what was become an annual tradition, the world's largest free-flying American flag will lift off from the campus of Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken.

The flag-shaped balloon will rise approximately 100 feet from the DeBaun Athletic Field at Stevens.

The specially-shaped hot air balloon measures in at 53 feet tall, 78 feet across, and 29 feet deep.

Those in the vicinity of Stevens should be able to catch a glimpse of it in the air between 8 and 9 a.m. tomorrow.

If you do miss it, the balloon will make an appearance at the 30th annual Quick Check New Jersey Festival of Ballooning in association with PNC Bank, held July 27-29 at the Solberg Airport in Readington, N.J.

The balloon's home is in Hoboken, and it was inflated last year for Flag Day.
