BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- They got the balloons off yesterday at the Field of Flight event at Kellogg Field, and concluded the night with a spectacular fireworks show.

Today is a transitional day for the 5 day event. They will have the Michigan Mile Car race, two balloon launches as the competition continues, and they also have some unique events you will only see tonight.

They will feature a twilight air show that features airplanes that emit fireworks, and a balloon allume that features tethered balloons burning their burners .

Director Barb Haluszka says they also have bands and the Shockwave Jet Truck. And the party is just getting started in Battle Creek. Two days of Air Shows begin tomorrow.
