A Family Friendly Event

What do hot air balloons and Christmas have in common? Everything! Saturday, December 6, 2014 over 30 hot air balloonists will parade down Grand River in Fowlerville, MI and fill the night sky with a glow that can be seen for miles and warm the hearts of young and old for the holiday season. Last year 12,000 people descended into the Village of Fowlerville for “Christmas in the ‘Ville”, which is the signature event of the year for the Village of Fowlerville.

Event History

The 30 or more hot air balloons to participate in the parade were the brainchild of a couple of pilots that wanted to be a part of the parade and make the parade an even larger event. Three years ago a group of hot air balloonists and pilots approached the Fowlerville committee and asked to be in the parade. The first year 8 balloon baskets lit up of small town and right then and there the committee knew they had something special and unique to the holidays. In 2012 Fowlerville had 26 hot air balloon pilots bring their burners to full glow during and along the parade route and made the parade even more special. The parade's attendance has grown each year and is expected to top 15,000 this year with fans coming from Grand Rapids, Frankenmuth, and far beyond the mitten state.
