Labor Day Weekend 2019 - Visit Colorado Springs

Labor Day

Labor Day Weekend may signal the end of summer, but not the end of the fun in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region!


Here are 5 ways to celebrate Labor Day this year:

Happy Labor Day weekend! Watch balloons soar above Colorado Springs, check out the arts and craft fairs, and so much more. There are numerous ways to enjoy this 3-day weekend in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region.

1. Labor Day Lift Off

Although Labor Day Lift Off will look a little different this year, there will be no shortage of fun. Event organizers plan to release hot air balloons from different neighborhoods around Colorado Springs so that the community can experience the balloon launch from their front porch.

If you love yoga and being outdoors, this adventurous paddleboard yoga class is for you. Celebrate the three day weekend by hearing the birds chirp and breathing in the fresh Rocky Mountain air.
