Hosted annually since 1991 in Ann Morrison Park, The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is an amazing way to provide family-oriented production for the public at no charge.
The event gathers both tourists and locals who enjoy being enclosed by inspiring music, and, of course, endless colorful balloons. The launches are weather-permitting and typically start at 7:15 am and last until 9 am. Free tethered rides are available on selected days. You will see dozens of hot air balloons over Boise, with the occasional balloon falling on the rooftops of historical landmarks in the middle of Broadway Avenue, and even on the Capitol's front lawn.
