If it’s Labor Day weekend in Colorado Springs, there must be hot air balloons in our skies. The Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off kicked off Friday morning with a trial run for members of the media, however, because of the wind speeds higher up, the balloons were unable to lift off.  Not to worry. The forecast calls for calmer winds over the weekend.

 

This annual event, which signals the end of the summer, takes place at Memorial Park starting at 7am and will feature over 70 hot air balloons. Lift off start are scheduled for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday mornings. If you’re not a morning person, you can catch the Balloon Glow on Saturday and Sunday nights at 7:30pm. Events sponsors this year will have a variety of vendors offering delicious treats like Dunkin Donuts or participants can enter Mike’s Camera photo contest. The USAFA Skydiving team is also scheduled to perform an aerial demonstration over Prospect Lake.

 

If you need something to do labor day weekend, check it out. The event is free and open to the public, but organizers recommend getting an early start for both the lift offs or the glows. Have fun!
