Labor Day Lift Off



Memorial Park
1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave.
Colorado Springs, CO 80909

At this colorful festival, glimpse more than 50 unique hot air balloons on their ascent into the morning sky—or sign up to take a ride in one yourself. After your flight, catch a thrilling aerial performance by the Wings of Blue Demonstration Team, the U.S. Air Force’s skydiving stunt troupe, or rent a paddleboard and spend the day gliding across Prospect Lake. Then finish a high-adrenaline day with a cold Budweiser, a lively performance by Suga Bear and the Showtime Band, and a blues show by the Austin Young Band. Sat 6 a.m.

Labor Day Lift Off


Memorial Park
1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave.
Colorado Springs, CO 80909

Take flight in one of more than 65 hot air balloons at the start of this weekend-long extravaganza. After returning to the ground, glimpse demonstrations by Wings of Blue, the U.S. Air Force parachuting team, then join in the Saturday sports exposition, during which you can try everything from ultimate frisbee to “zorb” soccer, a game in which you wear a giant inflatable orb and bounce off fellow players. Sat-Mon, times vary.
