39th Annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo

The Hot Air Balloon Rodeo offers guests a spectacle like no other with a sky full of color. Due to local and state restrictions, there will not be any public access to the Bald Eagle Lake launch field or any other “official” viewing area. Instead, spectators will be able to enjoy the 30+ balloons taking flight from anywhere in the valley. Look to the sky early to see the balloons inflate and enjoy this wonderful photography opportunity. Visit the event website below for full details on the most colorful weekend in Steamboat.
