The Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival will celebrate our nation's Independence Day "in-style" with the annual Fireworks Display. This display is one of the most popular features of the event. Family Fireworks Day will include Carnival Rides, Food and Vendors, Mario Manzini Magic Shows, Great Lakes Timber Shows, Balloon Launch or Fly-In and Field of Rock on Center Stage! Almost 8 hours of fun for the whole family! Don't forget to bring your cooler (see Festival Guidelines for details)!
Over the years, the Fireworks Display has become a major draw itself and has been produced by greats like PyroTechno, the Gucci Brothers & Melrose Pyrotechnics. The fireworks display will be over 15 minutes long (making it the third largest in the State of Michigan) and will be choreographed to Patriotic Music along with some pop, rock & country.
Don't miss the Booming Fireworks as we say Happy 237th Birthday America at this year's Field of Flight Airshow and Balloon Festival at the W.K. Kellogg Airport.
The 2013 Fireworks Display will be produced by the WORLD FAMOUS & AWARD WINNING Pyrotechnic Company Melrose Pyrotechnics. In fact, Melrose Pyrotechnics was just awarded FIRST PLACE Trophy in one of the most prestigious pyrotechnic competitions in the world, the Da Nang International Fireworks Competition in Vietnam! The display that they plan and choreograph at the Field of Flight will no doubt be high tech, awe-inspiring, and phenomenal. The fireworks display will be on THURSDAY, JULY 4th at 10:30 PM. A rain date is set for Friday, July 6th.
