Here are some additional images and videos from our visit to the Labor Day Lift-off in Colorado Springs. While this balloon festival is not as large as the one in Albuquerque it was certainly excellent!
While to the observer it appears to be total chaos each balloon pilot has been issued flight instructions as to when to take off. It was very nice for the spectators that there were over 60 balloons. This required two flights or lift offs as there was only about 30 acres for the balloons to launch from.
Who says pigs can’t fly?
And one of the most unusual was this presentation of “the old woman in the shoe”.
The lift off has begun.
