Hot Air Balloon – Light The Night Sponsored by Sellers Buick GMC
7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. / Shiawassee Park
As the sun sets, guests can enjoy Light the Night. A spectacular Hot Air Balloon Light Show, showcasing four beautifully decorated hot air balloons. Folks young and old will marvel as the beauty of the night starts to light up with artistic, colorful patterns. The rising of the balloons is based on a very basic scientific principle, hot air is lighter than cool air which results in less mass per unit of volume. Science all around!
Megamind SPONSORED BY Lake Michigan Credit Union / Henry Ford Hospital
Film rolls at Dusk | Shiawassee Park
After the balloons begin to fade, Megamind will come to the big screen. The film opens with a flashback: as two planets are sucked into a black hole, each one sends out a rocket ship carrying an infant boy of that planet. Movies in the park and refreshments will all be part of this evening full of wonder!
