Last Year for the Colorado Balloon Classic?

September 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It appears that 2014 is likely the last year that the Colorado Balloon Classic will be held in Colorado Springs.  After nearly 40 years of holding the event in the Springs and becoming Colorado's largest air show, the organizers point to difficulties with city politics and procedures as well as sponsorship challenges.  The Balloon Classic has been one of the city's longest traditions and has consistently drawn huge crowds over Labor Day weekend.  People came from all over the region over the past three days to watch scores of balloons take off over Prospect Lake in the mornings and to watch the "Balloon Glo" event in the evenings.  It will truly be sad if the tradition comes to an end.
