Time for another Ride-to-Eat!  This time we are going to Howell Michigan - this is the weekend of the Howell Balloon Fest. 

Saturday, June 29th, 2019, at 11:30am at George's Coney Island, 138 W Highland Rd, Howell, MI 48843

See schedule link below.  I plan to watch the kite team and skydivers after we eat and then will ride around the Brighton and Waterloo recreation areas for the day - returning to Howell a little after 6pm to witness the mass balloon launch before heading home.

Who's bringing the door prize?  If it's me - somebody is getting a talking tire gauge!  :))

Okay weather is looking better for Saturday than it did earlier in the week!  The problem is, I don't know if they launch any balloons if there is a front in the area.. maybe it will be gone by evening?  Hopefully they still have the stunt kites and sky divers at 1 & 2pm.

Also Georges is in a strip mall next to Kroger - you should be able to find it with the map link above. 

Be good to see you all - let me know if you'll be making it so I can give George's Coney Island a heads-up.  Thanks all

Turned out to be a darn good day, and the ride home was an adventure.
Good to see all of you.
