About the Event
Thank You To Our Sponsors
A word from Scott Spencer, Event Director :
This is the most important page on the entire Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic web site. In this day and age of challenging financial times there are not many companies (big or small) left in the Treasure Valley that have a sense of corporate responsibility to the city in which they call home.
The company logos shown on this page are the branded images of companies that do care, that have supported this event with their dollars, ideas and volunteers, all of whom have pride in our community and a strong willingness to create an event we can all be proud of. It is because of the companies shown below that this event even exists and to each and every one I am deeply grateful.
As you do business with these companies, I hope you will take a moment and thank them for their commitment to our event and to this community.
Enjoy this year’s “Balloon Classic”.
Director, Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic
About the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic
Since the very first Balloon Classic produced by Scott Spencer and Steve Schmader for the Boise River Festival in 1991, our staff, volunteers and sponsors have supported the basic mission of this event.
The goal of the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is to provide an exciting, family oriented production to the community of Boise, Idaho at no charge.
When we see families arrive in Ann Morrison Park, watch them spread their blankets on the ground, see happy kids of all ages, some still in their PJ’s, wrapped in blankets to enjoy a mass launching of hot air balloons, we feel like we have reached the goal of the event. The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is truly a one of a kind family friendly community event in the City of Trees.
The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic is proudly produced as a partnership by Lighter Than Air America and Townsquare Media Boise.
