Hot Air Balloons are so much fun to watch. I've never been sure if I wanted to go up in one, so this weekend, today and tomorrow, Friday, June 17, and Saturday, June 18, the 2nd Annual Hudsonville Balloon Days Festival is right up my alley.

The weather should be perfect, at least I think, with sunny skies, and mild temperatures. Don't know about the winds, but it sure looks good.

FUN AT THE HUDSONVILLE BALLOON DAYS

The Balloon Days Festival is at Unity Christian High School, 5900 48th Avenue in Hudsonville, and is free to attend but a $10 donation will be charged for parking at the school.

What fun you're going to have. There will be plenty of food with many food trucks at the event.

“Hark Up” will be there with entertainment all weekend long as well.

Also, don't forget you'll need to bring your own chairs and blankets.

Most of the launches will be in the evening, and then the balloon glows around dark. That is so cool that you and every one of your friends and family will love that.
