Colorado Balloon Classic

When: Sept. 1-3 2012

One version of the Balloonist's Prayer identifies all the things that could go wrong in flight — cyclonic winds, barbed wire, thistles, ditches — and then sends up just one request: "We pray there is cold beer waiting." Since this year's Colorado Balloon Classic in Memorial Park (1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave., balloonclassic.com) kicks off early (like, 6 a.m. early, all weekend), they might be more likely to find hot coffee at the front end of the free event. But perhaps those suds will be flowing freely amid all the inflated balloons and music and other concessions at tonight's 8 o'clock "Glo." — Kirsten Akens
