40 Beautiful Photos from CapEd Kids Day at the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic
One of the most beloved end of summer events is back in Boise! The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic kicked off at Ann Morrison Park on Wednesday morning and continues all weekend.
Day one of the Spirit of Boise is always one of our favorites. Why? Because the pilots don't leave the park. They keep their balloon on tether ropes that allow it to only ascend a 50-70 feet into the air, but still gives you a chance to experience what it's like to fly in a hot air balloon. Hundreds of kiddos and their parents came down to the park on CapEd Kids' Day to take advantage of the free tethered rides.
If your kids didn't have a chance to get up close and personal with the balloons on Wednesday morning, they have another opportunity on Friday evening at the famous Night Glow Spectacular! The fun gets started 5:30 p.m. with live music, food trucks and vendors.
The Night Glow Spectacular itself begins at 8:05 p.m. It features 16 hot air balloons that will inflate on a musical cue. They essentially before 75 foot tall lanterns that fill Ann Morrison Park with beautiful, twinkling colors.
Morning launches take place Thursday-Sunday as long as wind conditions allow. If you have the opportunity to see one of them, expect to see some very cool shaped balloons this year including Kermie the frog, Cosmic Crisp the giant apple, Allycorn the Unicorn. Bud E. Beaver, Whooz Up the owl and Montie the black sheep.
