Balloons Over Bellaire

August 27 - August 28

balloons over bellaire hot air balloon

Don’t forget your camera for this special two-day event as we welcome back 15+ hot air balloonists to Shanty Creek and Bellaire atop the slopes of Summit Mountain.

Located behind the Lakeview Hotel from 6-8pm on Friday and Saturday evenings, teams of balloonists take flight, while the sky above Lake Bellaire comes alive with color.

We are asking everyone to enjoy the show responsibly. Social distancing should be top of mind. Masks are a good idea, even outdoors. There will be plenty of locations to watch the balloonists, so be creative, find “your spot” and enjoy the show.


  • 6:30pm  – 7:30 – Balloon launches from the alpine tubing hill behind The Lakeview Hotel.



  • 7:30am  – Balloon flight over Torch Lake
  • 6:30pm  – 7:30 – Balloon launches from the tubing hill behind The Lakeview Hotel.
