It's going to be a hot weekend but it may be good because we need clear weather for the Hot Air Jubilee this weekend in Jackson. The Hot Air Jubilee is a gigantic hot air balloon festival where you can see dozens of hot air balloons taking up the Michigan sky.

The Hot Air Jubilee is happening on July 18th - 21st at Ella Sharp Park (2800 Fourth St, Jackson, MI 49203). The weather is looking to be hot but with some chance of rain, we need no rain because weather permitting, you’ll get the chance to see as many as five launches over the weekend. There will be morning and evening launches on Friday and Saturday, in addition to a final morning launch on Sunday. In addition, along with the launch you can watch the whole process of hot air balloon flight such as; trailer unpacking, inflation and eventually, lift-off.

The Hot Air Jubilee will be free, (parking on site will be $5) and there are other event like; live music, food, vendors, a car show, and kids activities. You can check out more here.
