It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No… it’s a few dozen hot air balloons filling the skies over Lansing, Michigan (sorry guys, I couldn’t resist)! This weekend is the Greater Lansing Balloon Festival, and the skies will be filled to the brim with giant, brightly colored balloons.

This Friday and Saturday (August 25th & 26th) is when it all goes down at Hope Sports Complex (5801 N Aurelius Rd, Lansing, 48911). There will be balloon launches in the AM and PM, as well as a multitude of other fun activities, including; crafts, face painting, food & drinks, and a 5k.

The cost is $10 per car, so take a bigger car and split the cost! Everyone is encouraged to "bring a blanket or lawn chair to view the launch!" Click here for more info.
