Launch the Summer in Frankenmuth!

Every year Frankenmuth has a summer launch festival with hot air balloon races and an evening Balloon Glow, where tethered balloons are inflated and lit with hot air. Same day is the "Dog Bowl," the nation's largest Olympic-Style event for dogs. Events include Dock Dog Diving, Wiener Dog Races, Agility competitions, and Disc Dog contests. All in all, it makes for a fun day! Come on out with us and join the fun. We'll meet at 2pm at the Disc Dog competition, as seen here on this map: http://dogfunfest.com/20-acre-event-map/

Carpooling is encouraged. Arrange a ride in the comments.

      Oh no, Penny! I was wondering what had happened to you. We were at disc dogs for over an hour hoping you'd find us. Next event I'll post a phone number to make it easier.

    Hey everyone, the race was a monster,I thought I was running with the older guys but I think it was more like semi-retired pro riders, they killed me! I'm gonna try and rejuvenate with a nap but of I don't make it I hope everyone has a great time and I'll see you next round for sure

      Great! I made a reservation already...did you too? I wasn't sure how many so I did 8 for 6:15, just to hold a table. This is my first MeetUp with you so I apologize if I am overstepping. I will call them back and cancel or add. Let me know. :)

    I'll be there early, I'm in the 40 mile cat 5 cycling race in the morning, I'll have my son along for my cheering section(it's my first race ever, so if any early risers are out, I'll take all the encouragement I can get).
