The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is back! The weather was nice and warm for the first day of this annual ballooning event. Usually, you will get some of the morning dew, a bit chilly, sweat-shirt appropriate while crowds start showing up around 5:30 a.m. That wasn't the case this morning with a warm, jammy no blanket type of morning for the kids.

The great thing about Scott Spencer (Lighter Than Air America) is he's pretty much the best of the best in America and is from right here in Idaho. We're extremely lucky to have this event and hope you enjoy some of the things you might have missed Tuesday morning.

Here are a few questions I was asked this morning that might help you.

Can we fly in a hot air balloon? It's too late to go on a flight with any of the balloons. Scott Spencer and his team have to submit names to the FAA ahead of time. You can always get in contact with someone on their website to set up something for the future.

What is a tethered flight and can we participate? A tethered flight is safe and secure. The pilot and their team tie down the balloon but inflate to its full capacity. The team will allow kids to come stand in the basket for a photo op.

How much does it cost and how do you sign-up? It's free! This entire week will be free to the public and that's the coolest thing about the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic. This event is about the family.
