BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) - The largest crowds of this year’s Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival in Battle Creek are expected today and tomorrow for the air shows at Kellogg Field, the balloon launches, evening concerts and another balloon Illume this evening. Executive Director Barb Haluszka says the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds may have been grounded by the Sequester, but they still have a solid lineup. She says the 50 Balloonists aren’t just launching for the fun of it. They are competing for cash and this year there is a multi-generational line up. Also on tap, magicians, an auto race, the Great Lakes Timber Show, and plenty of things to keep everyone busy all day.
