Fowlerville Hopes To Stuff Hot Air Balloon
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.
