The Hot Air Balloon Rodeo and Art in the Park weekend is one of the most colorful weekends in Colorado. Get to the launch grounds early to see the balloons inflate. The rodeo portion of the event consists of dipping the balloon baskets into Bald Eagle Lake, and since balloon pilots can be pretty competitive, you’re guaranteed a good show.

    Love the picture of the hot air balloons. They do some kind of event not far from here every year. I’ve seen the balloons in the sky but have never gone to check everything out

      I think I’d be scared to get into one for a ride, but they are fun to watch from the ground. πŸ™‚

    That looks like such fun! So colorful. I’d love to go on a hot air balloon ride one day.

    Those balloons are really pretty. We saw some of those in Charleston a long time ago. Bet it is fun to ride around in them. Sandee, you and Zane have a great day.

      Hubby and I don’t care for heights, so I’ll pass on taking a ride in one. πŸ™‚

    Boy are those pretty, we used to like watching them when we had a balloon festival here!

      I bet it would be pretty pricey to get a ride in one. You have a great day too. πŸ™‚

    Love the cheerful colors … were they getting ready for a race or something?

    • Comedy Plus
      July 11, 2018 1:58 pm at 1:58 pm

      Yes they are. Apparently they do this every year. πŸ™‚

      • July 11, 2018 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm

        I’ve heard of this, but never seen where the race began – always saw the balloons over desert, not green.

    I would love to attend a balloon festival. The photo opportunities seem endless.

      No, I’ve never been up in one. I would have in my younger years, but not anymore. πŸ™‚

    Beautiful. A nearby town had a balloon festival last weekend. Our dad took lots of photos. Some will show up on our blog for Sparks in the upcoming weeks. Thanks for sharing this stunning photo.

      I don’t want to ride in one either. Too old. πŸ™‚

    The year the Winter Olympics were in Calgary, the company I worked for took everyone up for a balloon ride! There were over 30 balloons of various shapes drifting over downtown Calgary! Riding in a balloon is unforgettable! Unfortunately it was pre-cell phone and video camera (everything was still on film). But I still have the memories!

      What a wonderful memory, Barb. When I was young I would have done this, but I just can’t do heights anymore. Love you back. Scritches to Marv. πŸ™‚

    We sometimes get a balloon in the field across the street β€” it’s apparently a great place for them to practice liftoffs and landings.

    Wow, the balloons are so colorful. There is a hot air balloon annual event in Helen, GA. They just held their 45th annual race. Helen, Ga is a mountain town in northeast Georgia known for its Bavarian style buildings. It’s very quaint and charming.
