The event provides an exciting, family oriented production to the community of Boise, Idaho at no charge. Providing a family-friendly environment that's perfect for a day out with the kids, The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic brings the community of Boise together. The event is also perfect for a romantic date with your special someone including the always gorgeous Nite Glow event.

The event is perfect for couples to enjoy food, live music, and of course the unbeatable pleasure of watching over 50 lit up balloons glowing up in the beautiful nighttime sky on August 29 at the Nite Glow event. Children of all ages have a blast at the Spirit of Boise events including the annual Kids Day which features up-close looks at the balloons and opportunities to go for a short tethered lift.

Unlike many balloon events in the northwest, there are competitive tasks that pilots participate in and there are the Crew Olympics where eight teams compete for cash and bragging rights. There's even a VIP Day where those who make the event possible with their financial support get to go for a balloon flight. On the final day of the festivities there is the very stunning Great Launch which features all 50 balloons lifting off at Ann Morrison Park. This is one unforgettable event you won't want to miss! Whoever you are you'll find something fun and enjoyable to experience during this year's Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic!
