Maybe it's the kid in me, but I still love seeing hot air balloons in the evening sky. That's why I'm so excited for next weekend and the return of the 5th Annual Kalamazoo Balloon Fest. Lasting all weekend long from Friday to Sunday Oct 27th- Oct 29th, this year's Balloon Fest is bigger than ever. Balloons are set to take flight over Gull Meadow Farms starting at 5 p.m. Friday and as dusk starts to settle over, there will even be Balloon Glows featured in the sky.

This event is perfect for people like myself who are on a budget as it's free and open to the public. There's going to be cider and donuts available, a fun corn maze to find your way through, entertainment and lots more new activities. The Kalamazoo Balloon Fest has really stepped their game up this year to make it the best yet.

Being my first Balloon Fest, I can't wait to experience this community tradition first hand. Keep an eye on their website for Balloon Fest information and list of events. Who will I see next Friday?
