Traditionally every night of the festival they conduct a balloon lighting, where they inflate the balloons and light them up with their burners. This year the winds were too strong to put out the balloons, but the operators decided to provide a light show anyway.
This is the last of the annual Colorado Balloon Festivals. Every Labor day the Balloon Festival was held at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs. Due to persistent high winds this year's festival was pretty much a bust. But I was still able to get some interesting photos. More to come through the week.
