If you want to enjoy fun things to do in Colorado Springs that the whole family will enjoy, or want a budget-friendly date night idea, then the Labor Day Lift Off is sure to brighten your weekend.

When Should I Show Up?

The time you arrive depends on what you would like to do at the Labor Day Lift Off. Do you want to enjoy hot air balloon rides yourself, or want to see them taking off into the sky? Take off is between 7am and 9am, so you’ll want to come early – especially if you’re driving in from Woodland Park or Castle Rock.

If you want to see the hot air balloons light up the night sky, then you’ll want to come for the Balloon Glow. The Balloon Glow starts at 7:30pm each night, but you’ll want to come early to ensure you find a good place to park and secure a place to spectate.

What Should I Bring?

While the Labor Day Lift Off is free to attend, you’ll want to bring some spending money if you plan on parking or taking advantage of the many local vendors that are at the event! We also suggest bringing a blanket or folding chairs to sit on, as well as binoculars to ensure you get a great view. Take a look at their Frequently Asked Questions to get a better idea of what you may or may not want to bring!
