2014 Launch Schedule
The Sprit of Boise Balloon Classic presented by Affinity Mortgage is Boise's most picturesque event. Here's a rundown of the major events that are scheduled.
The first inflation of the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic will start at 7:10 A.M. The activity will also be the Balloon Classic “Kids Day”. Children of all ages are invited for an up-close look at the balloons and (weather permitting) an opportunity to go for a short tethered lift. Expect about 15 balloons.
Beginning at 7:10 AM, there will be a balloon launch and it is also 2014 Balloon Classic Media Day # 2. Expect about 20 balloons.
We show our thanks to those who make the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic possible. We take these patron sponsors up with us on the morning of Friday, August 29th at 7:10 AM. Expect to see all 50 balloons at this launch from beautiful Ann Morrison Park.
Friday evening, join us for Nite Glow. You can come and enjoy a line of balloons, inflated at dusk (approximately 8:30) and glowing like 100-foot tall lanterns. There will also be great food available, a variety of family activities, and live music.
Please make sure you allow time for parking.
Beginning at 7:10 AM, there will be a balloon launch and it is also 2014 Balloon Classic Media Day # 3. Expect about 20 balloons.
This flight is the last scheduled inflation and launch of the 2014 Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic. Pilots will perform (weather permitting) “The Great Launch” at 7:10AM with all fifty (50) balloons lifting off in an approximate two minute window. The Great Launch requires perfect weather so cross your fingers. If we get the weather, this will be one of the most remarkable things you will ever see (and) the absolute “photo moment” in the history of the event. If the event weather does not cooperate, a normal inflation and release will be executed.
