Check out some of these throwback videos from Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic below. Make sure to hang out and get some great photos for social media. The pilots typically let families take pictures while the balloons are tethered. This means you can step in a balloon while inflated, but tied down to the ground. Completely safe and so much fun!

There will also be some amazing surprises including appearances by the 501st Legion - Vader's Fist You can expect several special appearances including some super secret events taking place at Friday night's main event, The Night Glow. This is extremely special when the sun sets and you see all the balloons light up the night sky. Come join in this family event and there will be plenty of light up sticks and other collectibles for purchase - The Force will be at Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic this year!
