Colorful hot-air balloons paint the sky at the Michigan Challenge, and this year guests will be able to paint their own memory of the event in Howell.

“Paint and Pour offers an interactive, creative activity for balloon guests to do while they wait for the balloon launches. It’s a natural fit to the Juried Arts Festival,” said Michelle Tokan, Michigan Challenge director.

Paint and Pour will offer four interactive paint classes at the event. Balloonfest guests can view the paintings offered at the event and register at the links below:
