One of the most exciting annual events in Battle Creek is the Field of Flight Airshow & Balloon Festival that was just held this past weekend. It is the largest 4th of July festival in the Southwest portion of Michigan, and with good reason.
The festival boasts not only an amazing airshow, but a carnival, music, fireworks and hot air balloons. It is a fabulous way to enjoy your fouth of July weekend with your family.
One of the exciting features of the event is the night time airshow. This year it was held right before the fireworks show on Sunday evening July 3rd. It features aerobatic stunt flyers shooting flames and fireworks from their wings in a dramatic crowd pleasing performance.
It was the first time I had attended this event, and I found it to be incredibly entertaining and beautiful to watch. I shot a video of a large segment of the performance, and have included it here. I hope you enjoy it.
