BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The largest crowds of this year’s Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival are expectedSaturday and Sunday for the air shows, the balloon launches, evening concerts and a Balloon Illume.
Executive Director Barb Haluszka says the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds may have been grounded by the Sequester, but they still have a solid lineup.
She says the 50 Balloonists aren’t just launching for the fun of it. They are competing for cash and this year there is a multi-generational line up, with several fathers and sons competing.
Also in the line up, magicians, an auto race, the Great Lakes Timber Show, and plenty of things to keep everyone busy all day. Gates open at 9 a.m. both days.
