Defiance Hot Air Balloon Festival (Birk Lake)

I call it Birk Lake because a group of us would go to Jim Birk’s lake and fly balloons, eat, drink and be merry, long before there was a formal festival. We still go to Birk’s lake and now enjoy all the fun of the Defiance Hot Air Balloon Festival.

The Crew

Past years have included skeet shooting, antique inflation fans, sweet corn competition and much more.
