The Grand Rapids Balloon Festival runs through Saturday, September 6.

Early Friday morning, The Milhouse Kids had a chance to visit with hot air balloon pilots and help them run some tests.

The Grand Rapids Balloon Festival, from RE/MAX of Grand Rapids and 100.5 The River, runs through September 6 at 9:00pm.

You'll find a lot of fun, family activities including opportunities to get up close to the balloons and the pilots.

The festival is at Gordon Food Service on Gezon Parkway in Wyoming.
