The Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival is less than two weeks away! There are always some great activities for you and your kids to enjoy together! Here are 5 activities for you and your kids to enjoy during the festival.
Kid’s Day is better than ever this year and at a new time! From 3-6pm on Friday, June 30, everyone gets in FREE for a night of family fun. There will be fun games and activities for kids on the balloon grounds. They will also be giving a way a bike, so do not forget to enter!
Chase the Balloons
One of my fondest memories as a kid was chasing the balloons around town during the festival! Get in the car with your kids and track your favorite balloons to see where they will land. You may even get the chance to help fold up the balloon once they land! I am sure this will be one of your kids’ favorite memories too.
Everyone loves a good carnival ride! The Skerbeck Carnival will be at Field of Flight once again with rides and games galore. You can purchase discounted tickets or wristbands before the festival begins. Head to the BC Balloons website to find more prices for this year’s event.
Watch the Fireworks
You have double the chances to make a fireworks show at Field of Flight this year! There are TWO dates, July 1 and July 4. The Field of Flight Fireworks Show is over 15 minutes long, making it one of the biggest shows in Michigan.
After Kid’s Day on Friday, June 30, stay and watch the balloon illume! More than 20 balloons will stay on the field and light up when it gets dark out. Watch the balloon’s light up on command from the audience. You and your kids will be mesmerized! There will be a second show on Saturday, July 1.
