September 6, 2021 LABOR DAY-We rode to the Colorado Springs CO Balloon Lift Off Festival at Memorial Park!

 We headed to the Labor Day "Colorado Springs, CO. Labor Day Balloon Festival at Memorial Park at 6AM. today, "it was dark" too see the Balloon Launch at 7AM, (yes, that's morning)! Sadly there was a video camera malfunction for the whole 15 minute ride to the park so NO VIDEO of the actual ride, BUMMER!

🙁 This event is 3 days long Sat, Sun, Mon of Labor Day weekend every year, we had 75 balloons fill the skies in 3 waves this year with the first day, "basket dunk" just touching the waters of Prospect Lake in the park! Man it was so PACKED with people, YES we were wearing masks and staying in the more open area's when possible. The video is short but it makes the point of the days ride. Headed back down town for a breakfast at the "Corner Cafe" for the 1st. time, their "breakfast sandwich" was great! Then on a beautiful morning headed to Manitou Springs via the Midland Trail taking a break at Schhryver Park then headed home before the days high temps set in, 90 F+ for todays high!! Fun ride and event a great way to end the Labor Day Weekend last Summer Holiday! 🙂 Short You Tube Video:
