Formerly known as the Colorado Balloon Classic, the Labor Day Lift Off is one of the largest and most iconic festivals in Southern Colorado! Taking place in Colorado Springs, the Labor Day Lift Off begins with the famous hot air balloon launch at 7 am on Saturday morning and continues throughout the rest of the weekend with lots of food, drinks, vendors, demonstrations, and more. As if this wasn’t enough, guests at the event also have the opportunity to ride in the balloons, which can be arranged in advance via the Labor Day Lift Off’s website.

The 2017 Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off will take place in Memorial Park (1705 E. Pikes Peak Ave.) September 2nd through the 4th. For more information on the festival, balloons, and vendors, please visit the Labor Day Lift Off’s website.
