COLORADO SPRINGS LABOR DAY LIFT OFF EXPANDS TO CITYWIDE CELEBRATION
 
CONTINUING 44-YEAR TRADITION
 
 
The 44-year Colorado Springs tradition of a hot air balloon event on Labor Day weekend will continue with the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off on September 5-6.
 
In the spirit of community and innovation, event organizers Hot Apple Productions, LLC and the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation plan to bring hot air balloons to residents across Colorado Springs amid the COVID-19 restrictions.
 
 
 
Look to the sky - from the comfort of your homes - between 7:30-8:30am Saturday and Sunday morning to watch a spectacular array of 35+ balloons participating in the modified citywide celebration, lifting off from 10-12 locations across the city (balloon launch site area map will be available at ColoradoSpringsLaborDayLiftOff.com as the event nears). Special thank you to Stella Artois for presenting the Saturday events and Xfinity for presenting the Sunday events.

While balloons soar overhead, tune in to your radio to listen to engaging and historical ballooning commentary. Watch for special television coverage throughout the weekend on KKTV. Several "pop-up" Balloon Glows are planned around the community for Saturday evening at 7:00pm, weather permitting.
 
 
Residents are encouraged to participate in the action and get their cameras ready to enter the 2020 Labor Day Lift Off Photo Contest - details will be announced soon!
 
In partnership with the Colorado Springs Gazette, spectators can snap and submit their best photo for a chance to win a hot air balloon ride for two.
 
 
Rainbow Ryders, Inc. Hot Air Balloon Ride Co. will be offering pre-reserved balloon rides to the public on Saturday and Sunday morning. There is limited space available - reserve your ride today at rainbowryders.com and check this spectacular opportunity off your bucket list.
