Now in its 26th year, the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is become a staple event in the City of Trees. What started as a small launch in 1991 is now a five-day hot air balloon bash at Ann Morrison Park that includes tandem launches of 30-50 balloons, the Nite Glow—when anchored balloons become giant lanterns—and a Kids' Day (Aug. 30), when little balloon fans are invited into hanging baskets for photos and short flights. The SBBC is contingent on weather, but Boise is blessed with mornings of blue skies and soft breezes more years than not, and families are invited to set up in the park with blankets and chairs, enjoy some concessions and watch the festivities unfold.
