Join us for at the 35th Year of Michigan Challenge Balloonfest! 38 Balloon Pilots will be competing for the state championship of hot air ballooning. A carnival and other events will be going on throughout the day. We plan to meet in time to see the mass balloon launch at 6 pm and then stick around until dusk when they will all be aglow and light up the night sky. It is a spectacular display!
We may be fortunate enough to meet a pilot however, there will not be any balloon rides available.
"The Michigan Challenge Balloonfest event is one of the premier summertime activities in Michigan, offering entertainment for the entire family. This community event has activities planned for everyone – from skydiving and stunt kite shows to carnival rides, kid attractions, fireworks, and the always-popular balloon launches, fly-ins, and evening glow. There are lots of NEW events and attractions planned this year, and we look forward to seeing you there!"
