PHOTOS: Spirit of Boise balloon launch on Friday morning

August 30, 2013 

The 22nd annual Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic was grounded by weather Thursday morning, but that wasn't the case Friday. The slideshow below features images captured by Treasure Valley residents and visitors this morning as hot air balloons filled the sky over Boise.

Balloon launches also are scheduled for 7 a.m. Saturday and Sunday from Ann Morrison Park. The Nite Glow and Concert starts at 6 p.m. Friday. The balloons will light up at dusk to music from Boise's Big Wow Band. The "Great Launch" and "Last Dance" are at 7 a.m. Sunday. All Spirit of Boise events are free to attend.
