Today was a great start to the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest 2015! From the thrill of watching the Renewal by Andersen skydivers fly onto the launch field, to enjoying the show of our pilots inflating on the field (even though conditions wouldn’t allow our competitors to launch), to a spectacular fireworks show, it has been a day full of fun and adventure… and the adventure continues tomorrow!

With fun planned for the entire family, we have another full day of balloonfest events and adventures! Some of our newest events are expected to be popular additions – including an instrument petting zoo from the Ann Arbor Symphony, Paint & Pour classes, and a Pilot Meet & Greet (you can get pilot autographs!). Don’t miss any of the fun – download a copy of the 2015 Brochure for a full schedule of events this weekend.

Thanks to Lake Trust Credit Union, our major sponsor, for helping to make this event possible!
