Balloons Over Bay Harbor – September 17 – 18, 2021

Balloons Over Bay Harbor

We are excited to announce our 2nd Annual Balloons Over Bay Harbor event that will take place in the Village at Bay Harbor, September 17 & 18, 2021. Our first annual event in 2019 was a great success and drew thousands over the weekend to witness some of the most beautiful hot air balloons, lifting high over Little Traverse Bay.

The balloon glows in the evening were absolutely breathtaking, with reflections mirrored in Bay Harbor Lake. We were unable to have our event in 2020 because of the strict guidelines for gatherings that we adhered to. However, in 2021 we are excited to be hosting some of the best pilots in the nation who compete in national festivals across the country and overseas.

There will be flight activity throughout the weekend and the amazing β€œnight glows” taking place on the marina lawn panel scheduled for both Friday and Saturday evenings.

Boyne Highlands ~ “The Sizzler” Slopestyle Competition ~ January 16, 2021

For our second annual Bourbon & Bacon Bash, we are changing up last year’s hot event to a slopestyle throwdown. The Sizzler is open to all skiers and snowboarders who want to go all out for the sake of bacon and giveaways. This is a judged event and top finishers will walk away with some great prizes like Plath’s Meats bacon, BOYNE gift cards, and SWAG. The Sizzler will be a fast moving competition with music, an announcer, and various divisions based on the number of entrants. Each rider will get two runs and the opportunity for bonus points by hitting “The Sizzler” bacon feature located at the base of the Lower Heather Terrain Park.

Spectators are welcome so come on out! Join us to watch from the base and enjoy a mouthwatering pig roast and a bar. We will have music, a bonfire, and visits from Huey The Highlands Pup to make for a fun – and sizzling – afternoon on the slopes.
