Thank you for coming out to the 2019 Labor Day Lift Off and celebrating your Labor Day Weekend with us!
The weekend was a huge success and we look forward to seeing you all next year (September 5 – 7, 2020)!

Celebrate your Labor Day Weekend at the 2020 Labor Day Lift Off

This is a FREE event, guaranteed to be a weekend full of fun for the whole family!

Admission to the park is FREE, so bring the whole family for a day of fun!

Start your morning off right with a hot air balloon mass ascension of over 70 balloons accompanied by breakfast and drinks from local vendors.

Activities will continue throughout the day with skydiving demonstrations, paddle boarding, live entertainment and donut eating competitions.

Wrap up your visit at Memorial Park over the Labor Day weekend with a hot air balloon glow at dusk.


Thank you to the City of Colorado Springs, Parks and Recreation, City Council, Mayor’s office, LART, and many others that have made it possible to continue this tradition. A special acknowledgement and thank you to Mr. Dewey Reinhard for his help and support for making this happen. Dewey was the originator of the event 44 years ago, and has been instrumental in keeping this event alive!
