Dear RV Campers:
Battle Creek, Michigan is gearing up for this summer’s Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival! Our dates will be July 2 – July 6, 2014, with all activities taking place at the W.K. Kellogg Airport.
We are truly excited with all the activities we have planned thus far and the schedule of events will do nothing but continue to grow over the next couple of months! And, with the number of requests we have received thus far for RV Camping, it is not too early to make your reservations!
We expect over 50 hot-air balloons. They will fly throughout the countryside for the AM flights. PM flights will take place at W.K. Kellogg Airport. They will either fly in to a strategically placed target at the airport or they will launch right in front of the spectators viewing areas.
The Air Show will soar with the return of the US Air Force Thunderbirds Demonstration Team! Other acts include; World Champion Rob Holland, Otto the Helicopter, Sons of Legends Matt Younkin and Kyle Franklin, the world’s only jet powered sail plane, a twilight air show and night air show with pyro, and the list goes on!
Of course the fun does not stop there! The event grounds/spectator areas will have a fabulous selection of food vendors from mouth-watering “ribs” to “chicken on a stick” to Schlotzsky’s famous wraps, funnel cakes, ice cream sundaes and this is just to mention a few. There will be crafter booths, souvenir booths, sunglasses and a variety of shopping for all. Center stage will also come alive with bands and group performances; Kid’s Day will feature free gifts and projects; July 4th Fireworks by Melrose Pyrotechnics and the all new Skerbeck Carnival and Amusements will fill the grounds with rides, rides and more rides! Again, this is just the beginning of what this great family festival will offer!
We do encourage you to indicate your preference for lot location on the RV Camping form, however, please understand that the assignment of the lot numbers will be determined based on the date we receive your application, repeat campers, RV size, and the number of days you plan to stay. Our RV lot can accommodate up to 100 units.
For those that want to be grouped together, we suggest that you mail all applications together or designate one person to reserve the total number of lots. The “Group Leader” can reserve the spaces needed; we will hold and guarantee these group spaces until June 1, 2014. At which time, any space that has not been paid in full, will be assigned to someone else. It is strongly recommended that the “Group Leader” send us a list of the individual names that will be or could be a part of the group.
We will accept RV Camping forms until June 15, 2014. All necessary maps and passes will be mailed to you on or before June 15th! NO REFUNDS after June 15th, 2014.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you this summer! If you have any questions, feel free to call the Office at 269-962-0592.
