Colorado Springs Hot Air Balloon Festival

Staying in Colorado Springs and looking for something fun to do?

Colorado Springs Hot Air Balloon Festival

 

Just in case you thought it was just about balloons here is a sample of what you will find this weekend:

  • Night time airshow
  • Frisbee competition
  • Live bands
  • Beach bash
  • Sky diving
  • Balloon glows

Being around hot air balloons is a thrill not only from a beauty standpoint but watching them come to life and fly is a thrill for all.  Please be respectful of the balloons and their crew.  Safety is important for all and they work hard to do their jobs and be in the midst of a lot of people milling around.
