Labor day weekend in Colorado Springs means the Colorado Balloon Classic. This year was the 33rd edition of this balloon festival. Apparently, its the largest and longest running balloon festival in the rocky mountain region.
I attended the event on Saturday. Unfortunately, the weather was such that they canceled the mass ascension. However, they did inflate most of the balloons. Watching a lot of crews inflate their balloons was very interesting.
Although I've lived near a few different balloon festivals, this was the first time that I've actually attended one. Walking around in a field surrounded by a dozen or more inflated hot air balloons is an impressive experience. Anybody out there with a balloon willing to give me a ride? :)
