  • Last year my husband and I wanted to take our grandkids for a miniature vacation for they are only 3 and 2 years of age.  He came up with the idea of going to Colorado Springs.  That Saturday morning we woke up to a sky filled with Hot Air Balloons!  They were just amazed as they watched them from our hotel room.  My Husband then suggested for us to go to the park.  I tell you for the rest of the weekend we not only had a great and wonderful time so did our grandchildren.  They came back with a lot to talk about.  I want to thank everyone that puts this all together and all who participate.  We will be sure to join this year. Thank you, James & Denise Torres and grand kids (Ana, AJ, Axavian) Denver, CO

  • All I can say is incredible. I've been a veteran Balloon Classic goer since 1994 and every year gets better than the previous. I volunteered for the Classic for the first time last year and I can't wait to help again this year. It is so much fun meeting and talking with the pilots and other volunteers. Congrats on another wonderful year. Monika Reinholz, Colorado Springs, CO
