Frozen Custard History - Just a couple of guys thinking' about the Good Old Days!Big Kahuna's Booth

It was in 1997 that my dad and I reminisced about Cleveland's old Euclid Beach Park (1895-1969). My dad was a young boy in the 1960s, a time when the pace of life seemed much slower, when you could spend a long summer day at the amusement park going on rides for a quarter each. He remembered the sound of Laughing Sal (The laughing lady at the fun house entrance), the smell of Popcorn Balls and Candy Kisses, the thrill of the Racing Coaster... Mostly, though, he recalled the thick, creamy frozen whip oozing from a curious looking machine and the way it was taken off the chute and slapped on a cone with the flick of the wrist. The taste still lingered in his mind and I wondered if this Frozen Confection could still be found.

I left no Cone Unturned in search of the Perfect Frozen Custard!

In my search, I discovered that, Custard Ice Cream originated on Coney Island in about 1919. It was sold as a Carnival Treat and quickly grew in popularity. Vendors began using egg yolk in their vanilla ice cream to make it extra smooth and creamy. This popular concoction called Frozen Custard was enormously popular through The Depression and the War years because it was delicious and inexpensive. As it grew in popularity, Frozen Custard could be found in Atlantic City and other East Coast Resort Communities. The problem was, real Frozen Custard was becoming increasingly hard to find. By the 1960s, most dairies and custard makers, in an effort to increase profits, began lowering the cream (butterfat) content and increasing the amount of overrun (air) in their products. What was left on the market was either Ice Cream or Ice Milk. I was not discouraged. We journeyed to a handful of places that still made old-fashioned Frozen Custard. I met the Kirkhoff family of Lafayette, Indiana. This family opened their shop in 1932, which is still in operation today and is considered the oldest continuously operating custard stand. It took me two years to perfect a recipe, acquire and fine tune a Modern Taylor 8754 Soft Serve Machine (Taylor thought I was nuts) and add 16 flavors of flavor burst. That is the art of flavoring. Flavor burst syrups are formulated to the highest standards and when applied to a custard with 10% butterfat and 1.4% by weight of egg yolks and a low overrun, you have the finest Frozen Custard like the Good Old Days.

Real Frozen Custard that is my Dream for 21st Century with Flavor Burst!

Today you can taste the World's Finest Frozen Custard at 30 county and state fairs that my company is at. No matter what your age, or whether you are a regular fair customer or tasting it for the first time, we are confident you'll keep coming back. Customers want to enjoy only the best. For a taste of the past and a taste of the future, why not try the best? You have tried the rest.

Sincerely,

Anthony Allega III
President

Food Vendor Letter

Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon FestivalFebruary 11, 2014

TO: Interested Food Vendors

FROM: Barbara A. Haluszka, Executive Director

The plans for this summer’s Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival are “flying high” as we prepare for five (5) family fun days!

Our dates will be Wednesday, July 2 through Sunday, July 6 (all activities will take place at the W. K. Kellogg Airport).  Opening day will feature “FREE ADMISSION DAY” and a $10.00 parking fee.  We are planning to have Kids Day, Fun Entertainment and spectators will have the opportunity to get right up next to the balloons prior to their flight.

The hot-air balloons will fly daily in the mornings and evenings.  The morning launches will be throughout the countryside, however, the evening launches will take place at the W.K. Kellogg Airport.  We will have up to 50 beautiful hot-air balloons and we will feature the ever popular “Balloon Illumes”!

The Air Show will soar and we are extremely proud to announce that the United States Air Force Thunderbird Demonstration Team will be a part of all the action!   Joining the Thunderbirds this year will be World Acrobatic Champion Rob Holland; Otto the Helicopter; Paul Stender and the world’s fastest Jet Truck; Kyle Franklin; Matt Younkin and the list goes on!   

Of course that is not all this event has to offer!  For the first time, we welcome the fabulous Skerbeck Family Carnival!  We will have great entertainment on stage, awesome Fireworks, Balloon Night Illumes, Twilight and Night Air Show with Pyro and the list goes on!

Please refer to the 2013 “Vendors and Product List” which shows the food vendors that have the opportunity to participate again this year.  Their application must reach us by the February 17 deadline in order to be accepted.  After that deadline date, we will begin offering vendor space to those Food Vendors on our waiting list.  Hopefully, you will have something new and unique to add to our line-up!  Please understand we do limit the “same type” booths so that we have a variety and everyone generates great revenue.

Therefore, to be considered as a Food Vendor for the Field of Flight, we will need you to complete the application, product list, your “Booth Rental Fee” and send us a picture of your booth (email it please in Jpeg).  We will only deposit your check if we are going to accept you!  You will receive confirmation that you have been accepted and the total amount due for your power.  If you are not accepted, we will notify you and return/dispose of your check.

Be sure to read all the pertinent information before submitting your application!  The Vendor Fact Sheet/Rules should answer most of your questions, however, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Field of Flight Office at 269-962-0592!

Thank you!

Such items could include, but are not limited to soft drinks, water, food supplier, helium filled balloons or air-blown balloons, glow in the dark objects, helium-filled objects, sunglasses and alcoholic beverages. We could also have booths doing various sampling such as ice cream and should this occur, we will notify those vendors selling the same product. PLEASE NOTE: Absolutely NO helium or air filled balloons or objects are permitted.

Items cannot contain the wording “Battle Creek Hot-Air Balloon Championships and Air Show” or “Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival” or any other such wording, which pertains to the official name or official logos of Balloon Corporation. Specialty Booths wishing to give away t-shirts or wearables must have the written permission from Balloon Corporation.

Should we have an Official Soft Drink or Water Sponsor, vendors will be required to purchase a minimum amount of product. If you have any questions, please contact the Balloon Office at (269)962-0592. Should we have an Official Supplier for the event, you could also be required to purchase product from them. Please understand, we will not expect you to purchase product from an Official Supplier if they do not handle the specific brand you need or if their pricing is higher. At this time, 2-22-14, we do not have any Official Suppliers.

BOTTLED WATER

All Vendors selling water or ALL FOOD VENDORS will be required to purchase a minimum of 10 Cases of Water from the Battle Creek Field of Flight Inventory Distribution Committee. We will sell the water to you at a fair market value.

ICE

We have an Official Ice Supplier and we will have a reefer filled with ice and we will make daily deliveries to Vendors; at which time Vendors will be required to pay cash or have a money order. We will carry 22lb bags of ice which will be sold individually. The estimated price on the 22lb bags will be $5.00-$6.50. However, please realize that Balloon Corporation and the Official Ice Supplier will have exclusives on the event grounds. ALL VENDORS must purchase all their ice on site; which means you cannot bring in ice from an outside source.

SET-UP OF VENDORS

We will send you an “acceptance packet” and provide you with a “set-up” request form. You will be permitted to indicate which day you would like to set-up, based on the following tentative schedule:

Wednesday, July 2        9 AM – 3 PM - ALL - Event Grounds open at 5 PM

All vendors EXCEPT FOOD VENDORS will not be permitted to have a storage trailer parked behind their booth unless prior permission is granted.

ELECTRICAL AND WATER

This will be our fourth year in our new location; of course our veteran vendors already know this. We do not have any power in this location. Therefore, ALL FOOD Vendors will operate off generators from Michigan Cat. Additional information will follow in your “acceptance packet”.

All other Vendors needing power can either bring their own “QUIET” generator or we can provide you with information on renting a generator. PLEASE understand that all generators must be inspected by the Electrical Inspector and Event Power Committee. These generators must have an adequate noise barrier and be free of fumes.

LIMITED water hookups will be available (one per food booth) but this water is not to be used as drinking water. Vendors are responsible for providing a UL approved check valve in order to connect into our water lines. Again, indicate your needs on the Application. Water hook ups are for Food Vendors only; some exceptions may apply.

TEAR DOWN

Tear down for all Vendors will be Sunday, July 6th after the last scheduled event; or Monday, July 7th from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon. Vendors must vacate the premises by 12:00 noon on Monday, July 7th.

REMINDER: ALL GENERATORS PROVIDED BY BALLOON CORPORATION WILL BE SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT ON SUNDAY, JULY 6TH! If you will need power until Monday, July 7, please contact the Office for arrangements.

Vendors further agree to check out with the Concessions Committee or Balloon Corporation's designated person before leaving the grounds at the conclusion of the event. Any Vendor found not abiding by the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement will be in violation of this agreement, which could result in immediate forfeiture of space, any fees paid and the exclusion from future events. NO ONE WILL BE PERMITTED to leave the grounds until ALL spectators have cleared the field and the VIP/Committee Parking lots located at the South End of the Field!

All Vendors are required to completely clean their area upon departure. Absolutely no vehicles are permitted on the grounds for tear down until authorization is given by the committee designee. 

SALES TAX

All Vendors are required to pay to the State of Michigan 6% of their sales. All vendors will be given the sales tax form upon arrival for your convenience.

GROSS SALES

ALL FOOD VENDORS shall pay a 10% maintenance fee on all Gross Sales to Balloon Corporation. Balloon Corporation will provide an accounting form for each Vendor to complete. The Concessions Committee or its designee will collect forms and maintenance fee owed on a daily basis. PAYMENT MUST BE CASH AND RECEIPTS WILL BE PROVIDED! THIS RULE COULD APPLY TO OTHER NON-FOOD VENDORS.

FOOD PERMITS

Food permits must be obtained from the Calhoun County Health Department, 190 East Michigan Avenue, Battle Creek, MI 49014, (269) 966 1206. Please do not contact the Health Department or expect contact from them until after you have received notification from Balloon Corporation that you have been accepted. The Health Department will receive a complete list of all accepted vendors and they will send you the pertinent information about obtaining the required Health Permits.

VEHICLE PASSES

Vendors can receive parking permits for a maximum of two (2) vehicles. These permits will allow the parking of ONE STORAGE VEHICLE and ONE TRANSPORT VEHICLE or TWO TRANSPORT VEHICLES. For food vendors, these vehicles must be parked directly behind your space assignment or an area that we designate. These passes must be visible in the vehicles at all times! Novelty, Arts & Crafts, and Specialty/Commercial Vendors will not be permitted to park at their booth location; at this time a designated area will be provided. Vendors will be allowed to purchase a week-long permit for $20.00 for vehicles outside the festival grounds, or you may choose to pay $5.00 per day, per car. Additional, free parking passes may be granted upon request.  Absolutely NO OVERNIGHT CAMPING on the Event Grounds, in storage units, vehicles, etc. Visit our website for RV Camping information.

WORKER PASSES

Vendors will receive at least two (2) "Official" Vendor Badges. These badges are to be worn by you and one of your top workers at all times. These are non transferable. There will be a maximum number of free admission passes for your workers. The Concessions Committee and Event Organizers will evaluate each request. Additional passes can be purchased.

PLEASE NOTE: EVERYONE IN THE VEHICLE (Entering the Field) WILL BE CHARGED IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A WRISTBAND OR BADGE for each day!

VENDORS DEBRIS DISPOSAL/PUMPING OF HOLDING TANKS

Vendors will be accessed a $100.00 “clean up fee” per day IF THEIR AREA IS NOT KEPT CLEAN as determined by the Concession’s Committee. Absolutely nothing is to be left behind on departure, i.e., grease, bricks, boxes, ashes, etc.

Vendors are not to use or move the trash barrels or dumpsters located in front of their booths or said area for the disposing of any product! Disposing of grease, fat or any other type of liquid is not to be dumped in any of the refuge containers. Vendors are responsible to have their own disposable containers.

Dumpsters and “yard waste containers” will be strategically placed and you will be assigned a specific dumpster for all food products and basic garbage. All cardboard boxes and large paper products are to be broken down and disposed of in a designated area provided by Balloon Corporation; do not set any product outside the units. Should you have a large quantity of boxes, please contact someone from the Concessions Committee or the Launch Site Committee and they’ll transport your boxes to the trash compactor or designated area.

Again, all food Vendors are responsible for disposing of their own grease or any other type of such liquid! There will be no containers available on the grounds for disposal and dumping on the grounds is prohibited! Any Vendor violating this will lose their space, all custodial and maintenance fees paid, be fined, and be removed from the premises. We will make arrangements to have someone pump your holding tanks. You’ll receive further information at a later date.

PRODUCT SALES, ADVERTISING AND GIVEAWAYS

A complete description of product sales, register to win, food sales, etc., must be explained on your application. This is to avoid conflicts and to keep everything fair. All solicitations must remain inside your own display tent or booth area including advertising signs, unless prior written consent has been given by Balloon Corporation.

EATING AREAS

There are no tables or chairs available for spectators to utilize. In the past, some Vendors have brought in their own “eating areas”. This is permissible, however, there will be a charge and the eating areas will be located directly next to or across from your booth. You must indicate on your agreement if you would like to bring an eating area and the size you plan to have. It is your responsibility to keep this area clean. Eating areas are calculated according to the custodial rates outlined for Food Vendors.

HOURS OF OPERATION

Hours of operation will fluctuate depending on each day's schedule. We will provide you with the final hours of operation prior to the actual event. Vendors will have time to clean their booth after the conclusion of the last scheduled event; approximately ONE (1) hour. The On-Field Security Committee or Concession’s Committee will give you a final warning for vacating the grounds each evening. The tentative hours of operation are as follows:

Wednesday, July 2     5 PM – 11 PM 
Thursday, July 3        5 PM – 11 PM
Friday, July 4            10 AM – 11 PM
Saturday, July 5        10 AM – 11 PM
Sunday, July 6          10 AM – 7 PM

IDENTIFICATION OF BOOTHS

All Vendors, as determined by Balloon Corporation, could be required to attach a large booth number to the front and back of their booth. These numbers will be preassigned and provided by Balloon Corporation.

GOLF CARTS AND/OR MOPEDS

Golf carts, mopeds, bicycles, 4-Wheelers, 3-Wheelers, Gators or any type of motorized vehicles are not permitted without advance permission! You must have an insurance certificate in the amount of $200,000.00 for liability with Battle Creek Hot-Air Balloon Championships Inc. and the City of Battle Creek as additional insureds. You must receive this permission prior to set-up for such vehicles and abide by the rules set forth by the organization. Any vendor found not in compliance could result in forfeiture of their space and all custodial and maintenance fees paid. These vehicles are not permitted on the Launch Field, in front of Food Concessions (must use the back perimeter road), or to conduct a site survey of the area. If permission is granted, you will be given a special sticker for your vehicle with restrictions.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS

Because we limit the number of duplicate booths and will be limiting the total number booths, we will be evaluating all applications as we receive them. Acceptance will be sent weekly. You must submit 100% of your “custodial fee” with your application in order to be considered.  Checks need to be made payable to:  B.C.H.A.B.C. Inc.  If you are not accepted, we will send you a letter and return your deposit.  All 2013 Food Vendors will have first rights for acceptance if their application is received on or before February 17, 2014, and accompanied with 100% of their custodial fee.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Should any Vendor have to cancel after May 2, 2014, they could forfeit all money paid to date.

MISCELLANEOUS REMINDERS

No motor homes, trailers, or recreational vehicles will be allowed to connect to the electrical supply without written permission. No overnight camping on event grounds will be permitted except in the designated Balloon Corporation RV Lot.

Fire inspectors, authorized electricians, and Balloon Corporation shall have full authority to eliminate any hazardous or unsafe conditions without notice to the Vendor. Any Vendor found causing excessive noise could forfeit their space and all monies paid.

Balloon Corporation shall provide minimum security patrols; however, Balloon Corporation assumes no liability for damages caused by theft, vandalism, or severe weather conditions.

Balloon Corporation reserves the right to limit ingress and egress during the balloon event. This will be under the control of Balloon Corporations Police Services and On-Field Security Committees. The access to Specialty Booth areas by vehicles shall be restricted in such a manner as not to interfere with balloon launches and other scheduled events. Vendors shall vacate the grounds each night one hour after the completion of the last scheduled event of the day.

Portajons will be placed in strategic locations for use by Vendors and their workers.

Any checks returned for Non-Sufficient Funds will incur an additional $25.00 fee.

Such items could include, but are not limited to soft drinks, water, food supplier, helium filled balloons or air-blown balloons, glow in the dark objects, helium-filled objects, sunglasses and alcoholic beverages. We could also have booths doing various sampling such as ice cream and should this occur, we will notify those vendors selling the same product. PLEASE NOTE: Absolutely NO helium or air filled balloons or objects are permitted.

Items cannot contain the wording “Battle Creek Hot-Air Balloon Championships and Air Show” or “Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival” or any other such wording, which pertains to the official name or official logos of Balloon Corporation. Specialty Booths wishing to give away t-shirts or wearables must have the written permission from Balloon Corporation.

Should we have an Official Soft Drink or Water Sponsor, vendors will be required to purchase a minimum amount of product. If you have any questions, please contact the Balloon Office at (269)962-0592. Should we have an Official Supplier for the event, you could also be required to purchase product from them. Please understand, we will not expect you to purchase product from an Official Supplier if they do not handle the specific brand you need or if their pricing is higher. At this time, 2-22-14, we do not have any Official Suppliers.

BOTTLED WATER

All Vendors selling water or ALL FOOD VENDORS will be required to purchase a minimum of 10 Cases of Water from the Battle Creek Field of Flight Inventory Distribution Committee. We will sell the water to you at a fair market value.

ICE

We have an Official Ice Supplier and we will have a reefer filled with ice and we will make daily deliveries to Vendors; at which time Vendors will be required to pay cash or have a money order. We will carry 22lb bags of ice which will be sold individually. The estimated price on the 22lb bags will be $5.00-$6.50. However, please realize that Balloon Corporation and the Official Ice Supplier will have exclusives on the event grounds. ALL VENDORS must purchase all their ice on site; which means you cannot bring in ice from an outside source. If you would like, we’d be happy to make arrangements for you to rent an ice chest for $150.00.

SET-UP OF VENDORS

We will send you an “acceptance packet” and provide you with a “set-up” request form. You will be permitted to indicate which day you would like to set-up, based on the following tentative schedule:

Monday, June 30           9 AM – 3 PM - FOOD
Tuesday, July 1             9 AM – 3 PM - FOOD
Wednesday, July 2        9 AM – 3 PM - ALL - Event Grounds open at 5 PM

All vendors EXCEPT FOOD VENDORS will not be permitted to have a storage trailer parked behind their booth unless prior permission is granted. Trailers are permitted if it is actually your “booth” versus a tent band you must indicate such on the Application. If you have any questions, please contact the Balloon office at (269)962-0592.

ELECTRICAL AND WATER

This will be our fourth year in our new location; of course our veteran vendors already know this. We do not have any power in this location. Therefore, ALL FOOD Vendors will operate off generators from Michigan Cat. Additional information will follow in your “acceptance packet”.

All other Vendors needing power can either bring their own “QUIET” generator or we can provide you with information on renting a generator. PLEASE understand that all generators must be inspected by the Electrical Inspector and Event Power Committee. These generators must have an adequate noise barrier and be free of fumes.

LIMITED water hookups will be available (one per food booth) but this water is not to be used as drinking water. Vendors are responsible for providing a UL approved check valve in order to connect into our water lines. Again, indicate your needs on the Application. Water hook ups are for Food Vendors only; some exceptions may apply.

TEAR DOWN

Tear down for all Vendors will be Sunday, July 6th after the last scheduled event; or Monday, July 7th from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon. Vendors must vacate the premises by 12:00 noon on Monday, July 7th.

REMINDER: ALL GENERATORS PROVIDED BY BALLOON CORPORATION WILL BE SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT ON SUNDAY, JULY 6TH! If you will need power until Monday, July 7, please contact the Office for arrangements.

Vendors further agree to check out with the Concessions Committee or Balloon Corporation's designated person before leaving the grounds at the conclusion of the event. Any Vendor found not abiding by the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement will be in violation of this agreement, which could result in immediate forfeiture of space, any fees paid and the exclusion from future events. NO ONE WILL BE PERMITTED to leave the grounds until ALL spectators have cleared the field and the VIP/Committee Parking lots located at the South End of the Field!

All Vendors are required to completely clean their area upon departure. Absolutely no vehicles are permitted on the grounds for tear down until authorization is given by the committee designee. 

SALES TAX

All Vendors are required to pay to the State of Michigan 6% of their sales. All vendors will be given the sales tax form upon arrival for your convenience.

GROSS SALES

ALL FOOD VENDORS shall pay a 10% maintenance fee on all Gross Sales to Balloon Corporation. Balloon Corporation will provide an accounting form for each Vendor to complete. The Concessions Committee or its designee will collect forms and maintenance fee owed on a daily basis. PAYMENT MUST BE CASH AND RECEIPTS WILL BE PROVIDED! THIS RULE COULD APPLY TO OTHER NON-FOOD VENDORS.

FOOD PERMITS

Food permits must be obtained from the Calhoun County Health Department, 190 East Michigan Avenue, Battle Creek, MI 49014, (269) 966 1206. Please do not contact the Health Department or expect contact from them until after you have received notification from Balloon Corporation that you have been accepted. The Health Department will receive a complete list of all accepted vendors and they will send you the pertinent information about obtaining the required Health Permits.

VEHICLE PASSES

Vendors can receive parking permits for a maximum of two (2) vehicles. These permits will allow the parking of ONE STORAGE VEHICLE and ONE TRANSPORT VEHICLE or TWO TRANSPORT VEHICLES. For food vendors, these vehicles must be parked directly behind your space assignment or an area that we designate. These passes must be visible in the vehicles at all times! Novelty, Arts & Crafts, and Specialty/Commercial Vendors will not be permitted to park at their booth location; at this time a designated area will be provided. Vendors will be allowed to purchase a week-long permit for $20.00 for vehicles outside the festival grounds, or you may choose to pay $5.00 per day, per car. Additional, free parking passes may be granted upon request.  Absolutely NO OVERNIGHT CAMPING on the Event Grounds, in storage units, vehicles, etc. Visit our website for RV Camping information.

WORKER PASSES

Vendors will receive at least two (2) "Official" Vendor Badges. These badges are to be worn by you and one of your top workers at all times. These are non transferable. There will be a maximum number of free admission passes for your workers. The Concessions Committee and Event Organizers will evaluate each request. Additional passes can be purchased.

PLEASE NOTE: EVERYONE IN THE VEHICLE (Entering the Field) WILL BE CHARGED IF THEY DO NOT HAVE A WRISTBAND OR BADGE for each day!

VENDORS DEBRIS DISPOSAL/PUMPING OF HOLDING TANKS

Vendors will be accessed a $100.00 “clean up fee” per day IF THEIR AREA IS NOT KEPT CLEAN as determined by the Concession’s Committee. Absolutely nothing is to be left behind on departure, i.e., grease, bricks, boxes, ashes, etc.

Vendors are not to use or move the trash barrels or dumpsters located in front of their booths or said area for the disposing of any product! Disposing of grease, fat or any other type of liquid is not to be dumped in any of the refuge containers. Vendors are responsible to have their own disposable containers.

Dumpsters and “yard waste containers” will be strategically placed and you will be assigned a specific dumpster for all food products and basic garbage. All cardboard boxes and large paper products are to be broken down and disposed of in a designated area provided by Balloon Corporation; do not set any product outside the units. Should you have a large quantity of boxes, please contact someone from the Concessions Committee or the Launch Site Committee and they’ll transport your boxes to the trash compactor or designated area.

Again, all food Vendors are responsible for disposing of their own grease or any other type of such liquid! There will be no containers available on the grounds for disposal and dumping on the grounds is prohibited! Any Vendor violating this will lose their space, all custodial and maintenance fees paid, be fined, and be removed from the premises. We will make arrangements to have someone pump your holding tanks. You’ll receive further information at a later date.

PRODUCT SALES, ADVERTISING AND GIVEAWAYS

A complete description of product sales, register to win, food sales, etc., must be explained on your application. This is to avoid conflicts and to keep everything fair. All solicitations must remain inside your own display tent or booth area including advertising signs, unless prior written consent has been given by Balloon Corporation.

EATING AREAS

There are no tables or chairs available for spectators to utilize. In the past, some Vendors have brought in their own “eating areas”. This is permissible, however, there will be a charge and the eating areas will be located directly next to or across from your booth. You must indicate on your agreement if you would like to bring an eating area and the size you plan to have. It is your responsibility to keep this area clean. Eating areas are calculated according to the custodial rates outlined for Food Vendors.

HOURS OF OPERATION

Hours of operation will fluctuate depending on each day's schedule. We will provide you with the final hours of operation prior to the actual event. Vendors will have time to clean their booth after the conclusion of the last scheduled event; approximately ONE (1) hour. The On-Field Security Committee or Concession’s Committee will give you a final warning for vacating the grounds each evening. The tentative hours of operation are as follows:

Wednesday, July 2     5 PM – 11 PM 
Thursday, July 3        5 PM – 11 PM
Friday, July 4            10 AM – 11 PM
Saturday, July 5        10 AM – 11 PM
Sunday, July 6          10 AM – 7 PM

IDENTIFICATION OF BOOTHS

All Vendors, as determined by Balloon Corporation, could be required to attach a large booth number to the front and back of their booth. These numbers will be preassigned and provided by Balloon Corporation.

GOLF CARTS AND/OR MOPEDS

Golf carts, mopeds, bicycles, 4-Wheelers, 3-Wheelers, Gators or any type of motorized vehicles are not permitted without advance permission! You must have an insurance certificate in the amount of $200,000.00 for liability with Battle Creek Hot-Air Balloon Championships Inc. and the City of Battle Creek as additional insureds. You must receive this permission prior to set-up for such vehicles and abide by the rules set forth by the organization. Any vendor found not in compliance could result in forfeiture of their space and all custodial and maintenance fees paid. These vehicles are not permitted on the Launch Field, in front of Food Concessions (must use the back perimeter road), or to conduct a site survey of the area. If permission is granted, you will be given a special sticker for your vehicle with restrictions.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS

Because we limit the number of duplicate booths and will be limiting the total number booths, we will be evaluating all applications as we receive them. Acceptance will be sent weekly. You must submit 100% of your “custodial fee” with your application in order to be considered.  Checks need to be made payable to:  B.C.H.A.B.C. Inc.  If you are not accepted, we will send you a letter and return your deposit.  All 2013 Food Vendors will have first rights for acceptance if their application is received on or before February 17, 2014, and accompanied with 100% of their custodial fee.

CANCELLATION POLICY

Should any Vendor have to cancel after May 2, 2014, they could forfeit all money paid to date.

MISCELLANEOUS REMINDERS

No motor homes, trailers, or recreational vehicles will be allowed to connect to the electrical supply without written permission. No overnight camping on event grounds will be permitted except in the designated Balloon Corporation RV Lot.

Fire inspectors, authorized electricians, and Balloon Corporation shall have full authority to eliminate any hazardous or unsafe conditions without notice to the Vendor. Any Vendor found causing excessive noise could forfeit their space and all monies paid.

Balloon Corporation shall provide minimum security patrols; however, Balloon Corporation assumes no liability for damages caused by theft, vandalism, or severe weather conditions.

Balloon Corporation reserves the right to limit ingress and egress during the balloon event. This will be under the control of Balloon Corporations Police Services and On-Field Security Committees. The access to Specialty Booth areas by vehicles shall be restricted in such a manner as not to interfere with balloon launches and other scheduled events. Vendors shall vacate the grounds each night one hour after the completion of the last scheduled event of the day.

Portajons will be placed in strategic locations for use by Vendors and their workers.

Any checks returned for Non-Sufficient Funds will incur an additional $25.00 fee.

ABSOLUTELY NO PETS ALLOWED ON THE FESTIVAL GROUNDS!
