Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic

Posted by Kelsie Stevens on

The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is quite possibly my favorite event of the year. Every Memorial Day weekend, Boise puts on a hot air balloon festival. Somehow we are not ranked in the top best in the USA, but I don't know how it could get much better than this. 50 hot air balloons fill our gorgeous mountain skyline at sunrise. It is worth the 5:30 wake up. If you live within 100 miles of Boise, you most definitely need to add this event to your bucket list. Such a great way to send off summer. I recommend getting coffee and donuts on your way in. If you have kids bring a good all train stroller or carrier. And don't forget your blankets and hoodies, it can be a bit chilly before the sun gets up.  If you've never been to a hot air balloon festival, find one near you.....I promise you wont regret it, now don't mind me as I spam you with a photos! 


My boys snuggled up waiting for some balloons to launch. 

There goes the first of them... We were right in the center, so as they started blowing up, we were surrounded. So much COLOR! Like a photographers dream... Say What....a rare family photo! And the balloon behind me was my fav, I'm a sucker for those color, and cactus!

Oh Wave, your emotions are larger than life. Ben's brother in town from Texas, he thought it was AMAZING

The Baby balloon was Waverly's favorite...go figure


 So much for a 3 year old to take in....

Brody was flying high the whole time!
