A few years ago I went to a Battle Creek Revolution game and filmed the entire game, and edited it down to a short video and posted it on my Youtube channel. The BC Revolution is not the same team any more, and a different league plays there now, but this was some great hockey. The Rink still is in downtown and one can go to see a hockey game there. Hope you enjoy this look back at a great game:
Our community of Battle Creek, Michigan has long had a love of Balloons. There are many events during the summer, and the city even hosted an international competition last year. I attended a ‘Balloon Illume’ a few years ago as part of the Battle Creek Field of Flight, and shot the following video and thought I would share it today:
Thanksgiving is a holiday which centers around re-uniting with family and friends, and giving thanks for all your many blessings. I hope all of my friends out there have a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday, and create some wonderful new memories. May the Lions win the game today, but if not, may everyone have a great time anyway! Happy Thanksgiving!
I previously wrote a post on the fireworks held at the Field of Flight Airshow & Balloon Festival that was held from July 1st – 4th at the W.K. Kellogg Airfield in Battle Creek, Michigan last weekend. The fireworks display was quite sensational, and I ended up videoing it in two parts, and posted two separate videos on YouTube on this.
So I have decided to include the second part in my blog here today on the grand finale of the fireworks show at the Battle Creek Field of Flight Airshow & Balloon Festival in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Fireworks are a great tradition on the 4th of July, and this show was quite wonderful. It was probably the best fireworks I have seen in a long time. The night airshow leading up to it was also wonderful.
Here is the video:
Last weekend I had the pleasure of seeing the fireworks extravaganza at the Battle Creek Field of Flight Airshow & Balloon Fest that was held at the W.K. Kellogg Airport. The event lasted 4 days, and the fireworks show was held on the evening of July 3rd, 2011. There were a lot of events that led up to the fireworks, such as the Balloon Illume and the Night Time Air Show, but those more or less set the stage for the big event of the evening.
I think that people love fireworks across all cultural lines and backgrounds. It something very special to admire the magnificent lights in the sky, and 4th of July is a great time to see them. I do not think that any Independence weekend would ever be quite complete without fireworks.
I filmed a video when I was at this years event, and I am presenting the first part here. I hope you enjoy it.
Last weekend the largest event in Southwest Michigan was held in Battle Creek. It is the Battle Creek Field of Flight Airshow & Balloon Festival. On the evening of July 3rd, I attended the festival with plans to see the Balloon Illume and then the evening fireworks show. What I did not expect was the exciting night time air show event that was held right after dark, before the fireworks extravaganza.
This event featured pilots flying at night, and they were shooting flames and sparks from their bi-planes lighting up the night time sky as they did flips, turns and dives to entertain the crowds.
They also fired off fireworks from their wings, making it an exciting crowd pleasing event. I managed to shoot a video of this portion of the evening show, and have included it here. Enjoy.
There is one very exciting annual celebration that is the largest in Southwest Michigan during the 4th of July weekend. It is the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival which draws crowds of over 100,000 people over 4 days.
Part of the exciting annual event is the hot air balloons. One of the crowd pleasing feaures at this event it the ‘Balloon Illume’ which is held at dusk. On the night of the fireworks on July 3rd, I attended this event and shot some video. It is one of the most colorful and beautiful summer experiences you can go to.
I hope you will take time to watch my video and ‘like’ it on YouTube if you enjoy it. Thank you.
