There will be 13 hot air balloon pilots who will be launching into the sky from the Marina Lawn Panels, with a total of 4 balloon launches. For a detailed schedule of events, CLICK HERE.

There will also be ‘Night Glows’ on Friday and Saturday night, where the balloons will light up while grounded, giving visitors a chance to get some pretty amazing pictures!

From the words of a wise hot air balloon pilot, “The ride lasts an hour, but the memories last a lifetime.”

The Autumn Glory Color Run & Walk will be held Saturday morning. This will be a 3K run/walk where participants will get splashed with colors along the way! Proceeds from the Color Run & Walk will go to the McLaren Northern Michigan Foundation Pediatric Patient Fund. CLICK HERE to register!

If you like dogs, don’t miss the Bay Harbor Bow Wow dog show on Saturday! Register your pup to walk down the red carpet where prizes will be awarded for best in weight class, best dressed, best owner/dog look alike, best trick and best lake jump. REGISTER HERE.

Meet the pilots who fly the hot air balloons! A kid-favorite meet & greet will include autographs and fun trading cards!
