The annual "Christmas in the 'Ville" takes place this Saturday in Fowlerville and this year they want to stuff as many people as possible into a hot-air balloon as part of an effort to collect nonperishable food donations.

According to the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell, organizers are hoping to get 1,500 people into the balloon portion of a hot-air balloon. The event coordinator says head balloonist, Ken Meyer, fit nearly 1,200 people into a balloon's envelope during another event, so Meyer had the idea to top that number for this event. Another highlight of "Christmas in the 'Ville" is a parade featuring more than 30 hot-air balloons. To find out more about the event, click here.
