Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic Preview [Photos]
It's that time of year again in Idaho, where the temperatures hover in the triple digits, and some folks are on vacation in much cooler locations. Some folks call them the dogs days of summer; however, it won't be long before it's football season, kids will be going back to school, football season, and the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic.
This year will be the 31st Annual Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic held at Ann Morrison Park. Boise is one of the most popular balloon communities in the country. Over fifty balloons will fly over the Treasure Valley skies from Wednesday, August 31st, to the final flights on Sunday, September 4th. There is no charge to attend the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic, thanks to presenting sponsor Cap Ed Credit Union.
This year will be the first one without our brave balloon champion Larry Gebert of KTVB. Larry loved the balloon classic and, along with our founder Scott Spencer, created years of must-see television. We miss both Larry and Scott, who we lost in 2020.
