Who's talking about the Colorado Springs Balloon Classic? It's a new era, and here comes the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off Balloon Festival to meet your floating needs. The three-day free event in Memorial Park (1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave., coloradospringslabordayliftoff.com) features skydiving, a wakeboarding exhibition and, naturally, balloon rides with the Rainbow Ryders. The opening ceremonies kick off each morning at 6:30, with a balloon glow each night at 7. "We would like to say Thank You to the City of Colorado Springs, Parks and Recreation, City Council, Mayors office, LART and many others that have made it possible to continue this 38 years on," the organizers say on their website. And so say we all. — Bryce Crawford
