If you want to check out something cool and fun this weekend, you won't have to go far and can simply look up. As this Friday and Saturday is the Greater Lansing Balloon Festival at the Hope Sports Complex.

The balloons are returning and will be launched through out Friday and Saturday, weather permitting. The balloon launches will be happening at around 7am on both Friday and Saturday morning, with another set of launches scheduled for the evening of both days starting at 6:30PM. To check them out up close you have to head to the Hope Sports Complex (5801 North Aurelius Road in Lansing). But if you are in the area of South Lansing you will be able to see them all over the sky this weekend.
