When it comes to today’s outdoor events, the weather just didn’t want to cooperate. Following the Pilot Meet & Greet, the decision was made to cancel the remainder of the evening’s events due to wet weather conditions.

Saturday was filled with fun, in spite of the wet day, including NEW events like Paint & Pour classes, the Instrument Petting Zoo from the Ann Arbor Symphony, and a Teddy Bear Clinic from the Saint Joseph Mercy Livingston Hospital.

The fun (and a more promising forecast) begins early tomorrow, with a Balloon Fly-In planned for 6am-8am on Sunday morning, weather permitting. The Arts Festival & Open-Air Marketplace begin at 10am, and the Carnival starts at 11am.

The Howell Farmers Market is also taking place in downtown Howell, adjacent to the courthouse, from 9am-2pm.

Join us at the main stage on Sunday afternoon for a NEW and exciting event – the Livingston Sensation Singing Contest. The finalists compete on the main stage at 2pm in the hopes of winning a hot-air balloon ride!

With Paint & Pour classes, Family Fun Tent, Ann Arbor Symphony Instrument Petting Zoo, crafts, games, hula hooping, obstacle course, and so much more planned, you won’t want to miss the exciting final day of the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest 2015!
