Battle Creek Air Show and Balloon Festival July 1 - 5

Battle Creek Air Show and Balloon Festival July 1 - 5

Battle Creek will play host to the Air Force F-22 Raptor Demo team July 1-5, 2015. This is only 1 of 19 events during this time.

The Air Show will show the best of the best when civilian performers fill the sky July 3 – 5 with aerobatic maneuvers that make the fastest roll-a-coaster seem like a merry-go-round.

“Even more excitement has been added to this year’s Air Show,” stated Barbara Haluszka. “We are not only going to have pyro during the Night Air Show but during the actual Air Show itself,” she said. Spectators will love the explosions and the 750 ft. Wall of Fire!

Air Show at its best! Join us at the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival.
