Hot Air ‘Balloon Illume’ in Battle Creek, Michigan


The 'Balloon Illume' is a fantastic summer feature on 4th of July weekend.

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.
