Balloons over Bavaria and the Dog Bowl are heating up Frankenmuth this weekend.

“People treat us really great and it seems like every year we get bigger and bigger crowds," said Wes Dickerson, a balloon pilot who comes to the event every year.

Jim Engel helps put on Balloons over Bavaria and said it will be bigger and better than ever this year.

“We have 25 of the best balloonists from around the Midwest coming, and it’s our 10th anniversary. The fact that it’s the 10th year we are bringing in the best of the best. They are really a thrive to compete. You probably wouldn’t even know you complete in hot air ballooning," he said. 

Engel said the prizes can be up to a few grand but if you want to keep your eyes closer to the ground you can check out the Dog Bowl.

“We are having the Frisbee dogs over there. They are doing agility, lure coursing, sheep herding. There is obedience training, there’s dog diving, wiener dog races, all kinds of fun stuff, costume contests,” said Scott Jones with the Dog Bowl. 

There will even be a rock-and-roll K-9 show. It's jammed packed with lots of fun, great dogs doing wonderful tricks. 

The Frankenmuth River Place Shops are inviting you to bring your dog and you can participate in some of the events. If your dog is good, you could even win a prize.

Grant Reeves said they are looking for some undiscovered talent this year in the Dock Dogs competition. 

"You can sign up right here at Dock Dogs and be one of our first timers and give it a try, and who knows, you might have the first world champion," he said.
