Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off
August 31 - September 2
Every year, the arrival of fall is marked at Colorado Springs with a massive hot air balloon ascension. You can go up in one of over 70 balloons accompanied by breakfast and drinks from local vendors that rise in the sky to greet the sun.
Other activities during the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off Balloon Festival includes skydiving demonstrations, wake-boarding, paddle boarding, chainsaw carving, and donut eating competitions. In addition, there will be plenty of music and other live entertainment. The day of festival fun ends with an amazing hot air balloon glow at dusk.
