Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic Preview [Photos]
It's that magical time of year again in Idaho, where the temperatures hover in the triple digits, and some folks are on vacation in much cooler locations. Some folks call them the dogs days of summer; however, it won't be long before it's football season, kids will be going back to school, football season, and the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic.
We've been blessed that this summer has given us a welcomed break from the usual heatwave that Idahoans, from farmers to tech workers, endure early. There is good news, which means it's time for a free, fun, week long event that will melt the hearts of every kid and every kid at heart.
This year will be the 32nd Annual Scott Spencer Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic held at Ann Morrison Park. Boise is one of the most popular balloon communities in the country. Over fifty balloons will fly over the Treasure Valley skies from Wednesday, August 30th, to the final flights on Sunday, September 3rd. Attending the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is free, thanks to presenting sponsor Cap Ed Credit Union.
We lost two great champions of the balloon classic, Scott Spencer, the founder, and Larry Gebert, the champion, a few years ago, but their spirit lives with all of us during the festival. The balloon classic is so Boise and Idaho that you and your family must attend this yearly event.
