Have you ever walk beside a balloon pilot and crew as they layout the monstrous hot air balloon that looks like such a tiny dot in the sky? Have you ever felt the heat on your face from the gas torch that helps ignite the balloon into flight? If you've never had the experience of watching hundreds of balloons prep and take off all with a interactive and up-close perspective, you've got to check out the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic this year.
Unfortunately, this is the last year for the Balloon Classic in Colorado Springs because the local government and city practices are making it more and more difficult to host the event locally. Come see this local, iconic event and celebrate the 38th and final year in Colorado Springs.
