The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is more than just a bunch of balloons. This historic week it's all about community. I've enjoyed watching the kids light up when they see these amazing colorful balloons. Parents are coming down each morning right before work with kids still in blankets bundled to the max!

We most recently developed a relationship with a few local organizations that entertain, to entertain. We don't pay them, bribe them, or have signed contracts. I'm not being paid to tell you how amazing they are. I'm just gonna say that our son is going to lose it when he meets Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Jedi Knights and more. We want to welcome some great people who represent the 501st and the Takodana Base in the Rebel Legion.

The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic continues with the night glow Friday night and morning flights Saturday/Sunday. We have a full list of events at the Spirit of Boise Website.
