Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off

Bring the whole family for a day of fun!

Start your morning off right with a hot air balloon mass ascension of over 70 balloons accompanied by breakfast and drinks from local vendors.

Activities will continue throughout the day with skydiving demonstrations, wakeboarding exhibitions, paddle boarding, live entertainment, chainsaw carving, and donut eating competitions.

Wrap up your visit at Memorial Park over the Labor Day weekend with a hot air balloon glow at dusk on Saturday and Sunday.

As the sun sets at Memorial Park, watch as hot air balloons “glow” amid the night sky. Balloon glows are perhaps the most spectacular part of any balloon festival.

The many balloons will inflate and ignite their burners, resulting in a magical dance.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with this event.
