The Grand Rapids Balloon Festival sponsored by RE/MAX of Grand Rapids is back and bigger than ever! Fun for all ages can be found during the three day event that kicks off in downtown Grand Rapids on July 20th. Magicians, balloon animals, petting zoo, carnival games, photo booths, cookies and canvas, helicopter rides, live music, food, and TONS of hot air balloons can be found at the festival!
The fun begins with a Balloon Walk and Night Glow at Ah-Nab-Awen park in Grand Rapids. Watch the balloons light up the sky or walk inside the RE/MAX Balloon! From there the festival shifts to the Hudsonville Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday where things will kick into full gear. There will be many opportunities for free and affordable events for the whole family with all proceeds being donated to local charities. Balloons will begin to launch around 7 pm (weather permitting) and you will get a front row seat! For more information and schedule of events follow this link: Grand Rapids Balloon Festival
