Do your kiddos love hot air balloons, airplanes, carnival rides, and entertainment? This year’s Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival will have all this and more!

Last year our family attended several days of the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival. I can say that it was one of the highlights of our summer! My 6 year old son loved all of the great acts in the Air Show and the awesome balloon launches.

    We.have never been and would LOVE to go. 🙂

  2. Mishelle May 20, 2015 at 7:45 am

    My family and I would really like to go to the air show. It’s something we’ve wanted to do every summer since moving to this area a few years ago, but have never been able to. My husband is a navy veteran, and I know he’d love to see the jets. My two young boys would also love the jets, and especially the balloons!

  3. Denise J. May 20, 2015 at 10:49 am

    My grandsons are in love with hot air balloons and have never been to see them.

  4. Jodie Glessner May 20, 2015 at 10:56 am

    I would love to win tickets & see the excitement on my daughters faces. I have awesome memories of going with my family when I was younger. The fireworks are amazing also!

  5. Shelley May 20, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    We haven’t been to this before, but I bet our girls would love it! Looks like fun!

  6. Kate May 20, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    I have lived in Michigan all my life and I’ve never been to the Balloon Festival. Now that I have two little ones I would love to be able to take them. My almost 6 year old son would be completely intrigued with the jets, whereas my 9 month old daughter would be fascinated by the balloons!

  7. AMANDA Campbell May 20, 2015 at 3:29 pm

    I would love to take my two year old. She’s never been and I think she would love it!

  8. Danielle J. May 20, 2015 at 3:39 pm

    My sons have never been, they would love this opportunity!

    I would like to win for my husband who has loved airplanes since he was a little boy and for my 1 year old son who already gets excited about planes and pretends to fly his toy planes around for hours. They love to watch the movie Planes together! My 3 and 5 year old girls would enjoy it too!

  13. Shameka May 23, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    My family and I would love to go. My youngest son is special needs and loves watching planes in the sky, and im sure he would love the hot air balloons.

  14. Charlotte May 24, 2015 at 12:55 pm

  18. Miranda May 27, 2015 at 7:07 am

    We would love to win. My kids have never been and we would love the opportunity. My 3 year old has never seen a hot air balloon and he would be ecstatic.

  19. Beth May 28, 2015 at 6:20 am

    We haven’t been in many years and would love to go!

  20. Tammy R. May 28, 2015 at 1:53 pm

  23. Sandy June 1, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    My family of 6 would love to go!! We have never been!

  24. Sarah B June 1, 2015 at 9:12 pm

    this is one of our family’s favorite festivals and there are so many wonderful things to do! The air show, fun rides & games and yummy food make for a fun day and watching the balloons come in at night or finishing off the day with the fireworks show is always a treat. We would absolutely love to win!

  25. Jessica Smith June 2, 2015 at 1:20 am

    I have 4 children, 3 of which have never gone. My oldest was 2 when he went. Would love to take all the children because they love planes and balloons, but it is expensive for our family to get in. These tickets would be a blessing!

  26. mitchell dehaan June 6, 2015 at 10:19 am

    I hope we win! Our two kids would have a blast!

  27. Kristie Jaffke June 8, 2015 at 12:25 pm

    I have six step kids ages 2-8 who would love the balloons and airplanes! We can’t afford every festival, so these tickets would be a blessing! We try to experience allot of stuff around town and checking this off our list would bring plenty smiles!

  28. Denise VerHage June 9, 2015 at 6:33 am

    my family would love it!! Especially my 9 year old son!!

  29. Ronda fox June 9, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    my kids have never been to the airshow and balloon festival. I’m always looking for something to take the kids to do. And this would be a perfect distraction to take their mind off their brother being deployed with the navy. This would be a great family trip!
