A hot air balloon festival took flight this weekend with more than 100 different creations from around the world.

Some designs include Darth Vader, Master Yoda, an American Flag, a giant whale, a Panda Bear and a baby dinosaur.

The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning is in its 33rd year and takes place at the Solberg Airport in Readington, NJ.

According to the website, there is daily entertainment including the chance for morning and evening balloon rides starting at $225 per person -- which have already sold out. The event concludes Sunday, July 26.

Take a look at some of the creations above in our gallery, and learn more by watching this video below.
