Hot Air Balloon Launch

The Yampa Valley will be dotted with color as more than two dozen balloons take to the sky Saturday and Sunday mornings. On Saturday morning, grab a shuttle to the launch site at Bald Eagle Lake.  There will also be kids activities and the experience of being surrounded by balloons as they rise to the occasion. On Sunday, hop onto a shuttle to the lake and come for a more casual balloon atmosphere with morning food and merchant vendors, kids activities and balloons galore.
