The annual tradition of a hot air balloon event on Labor Day weekend, September 3-5, in Colorado Springs continues with the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off. A spectacular array of 65+ hot air balloons will converge in Memorial Park and participate in competitions and balloon glows, drawing spectators from Colorado and beyond.
This balloon festival will feature a Beer Festival with Beer Garden and VIP tent, live entertainment and concerts, and food trucks!
The Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off is one of the largest hot air ballooning events in the nation and the largest in Colorado. Enjoy free admission and activities for the entire family!
