The Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off brings fun and excitement throughout the Labor Day Weekend for the entire family.
One of the most fun Labor Day traditions in Colorado Springs is the Labor Day Liftoff in Memorial Park. The park’s incredible views of Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain and Prospect Lake combine to provide the perfect backdrop for this annual event, and this year is no exception. However, an important reminder to attendees that Prospect Lake is closed to water contact due to a blue-green algae bloom that is producing a toxin that is harmful to humans and pets. The toxin is called microcystin toxin and it is currently affecting many lakes and ponds nationwide. Signs are posted around the lake.
