About This Activity

 The Greater Lansing Balloon Festival will be held at the Hope Sports Complex on 5801 Aurelius Road in Lansing. This event will take place on September 30 and October 1, as a fundraiser for the Lansing Promise Scholarship Programs. Kicking off this event on Friday evening, Re/max Real Estate Professional, Tim Gale along with Playmakers will be hosting a 5k Fun Run at the complex. This unique race, will benefit Capital Area Community Services, Early Childhood and its preschool literacy programs. The Fun Run will start at 5:30pm. Enjoy walking or running with a back drop of more than 20 balloons, set to take off at 6pm. After the Fun Run, pizza and refreshments will be served to the participants. Then at dusk, enjoy the illumination of the balloons on the horizon. You can receive an official Balloon Festival T-shirt that commemorates the event with a ten dollar donation. Otherwise, we will accept donations at the beginning of the race or on line with your registration. A Photographer will be on site capturing the memories of the evening for purchasing later. Parking fee is five dollars with proceeds going to the Lansing Promise scolarship program. The field for the run should be considered a cross country event and strollers should not be used unless equiped to handle rough terrain. Come Run with the Balloons!!!
