Kalamazoo Balloon Fest 2017
October 27th-29th
Gull Meadow Farms
Richland, Michigan

The 2017 Kalamazoo Balloon Fest will be taking place October 27th, 28th & 29th at Gull Meadow Farms in Richland, Michigan. While not an air show, this event does feature 30+ Hot-Air Balloons and is the largest fall themed balloon festival in the State of Michigan.

Admission is completely FREE as is parking. The event will kick-off on the evening of Friday, October 27th with a Balloon Flight shortly followed by a Balloon Glow. Gull Meadow Farms will be operating all activities on Friday-Sunday (corn maze, Back 40, Petting Zoo, Apple Canons, Pumpkin Lane Kids Area, Pumpkin Patch, Hay Rides, Pig Races, Market and more), including the everpopular nighttime flashlight corn maze on Friday & Saturday. Farm activities are at normal rates. Saturday will feature a balloon flight in the morning and evening as well, followed by a glow. Sunday will feature a morning flight only, but a Pumpkin Drop will happen in the afternoon.

All-in-all, its a good time and a great way for Southern Michiganders to get an aviation fix as air show season draws to a close.
