It is the most wonderful time of the year and it has absolutely nothing to do with Santa, snow, or gifts. That's right, we're re-writing the script!

Here in Boise, many things make living great. From outdoor activities to great local businesses, four distinct seasons to a much "slower" day to day pace. Other aspects of what makes Boise great? Our amazing annual events.

How many annual events would be considered true signature events in the city? Perhaps Treefort Music Festival, Boise Music Festival, and the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic top the list.

Each year, the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic takes over Boise skies--gracing our morning commutes with tons of hot air balloons up in the clear blue skies. Often times, it is photos of this event that make national marketing materials for just about ever business.

While you'll see plenty of balloons up in the air--this year, four specialty balloons will be floating about and you MUST find them!

Here is your first look at four hot air balloons that will be special features at this year's Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic! 

These Four Balloons Are Special Features in Boise This Weekend

Lots of hot air balloons will be going up this weekend but make sure that you're looking out for these special ones!

Don't forget, the event is a week-long celebration of hot air balloons in Boise. Friday night is one of our favorite events--the Nite Glow! Bring the whole family out!
