Today is the first day of the 2019 Michigan Challenge Balloon festival in Howell. It runs all weekend and a great place to catch the sight of these mammoth hot air balloons is right from our new deck!

The mass launches are located at Howell High School which is only 8 miles away. They can be seen from miles around! And depending on the way the winds blow – they may head straight for us!

The balloons launch schedule is:

Friday 6:00-8:00PM

Saturday 6:00-8:00AM and 6:00-8:00PM

Sunday 6:00-8:00AM and 6:00-8:00PM

Downtown Howell is where the main festival events take place. To get to The Links at Hunters Ridge you’ll want to take an alternate route.  From the East on I-96 take Latson Road exit to Grand River to Oak Grove Road.  From the West, take the Burkhart exit to M-59 to Oak Grove Road.

Come and enjoy some great golf, great views, and a cold one on the new deck!
