UPDATE (1:00 PM) – Afternoon activities will go on as scheduled.

HUDSONVILLE, Mich. — The Grand Rapids Balloon Festival’s morning activities have been cancelled for Saturday morning.  Event planners say it’s too windy to launch the balloons into the sky.  The festival is hosting events throughout the day, but it’s unclear if those are cancelled as well.  Officals will re-examine weather conditions as it gets closer to the next event’s start time.
