  • Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic Take to the Skies

    Wednesday, Aug. 29-Sunday, Sept. 2

      Hot air balloon pilots are somewhat subject to the whims of Mother Nature, and this mode of transportation affords little ability to steer. Once airborne, the wind's movement through the valley shapes the route balloons take. Balloons float along the wind as it moves over the terrain below. In the right weather, though, pilots can pull off tricky maneuvers like the "splash and dash," in which the basket briefly kisses the waters of the Boise river.
