An early morning walk on the launch field of the 37th annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo feels other-worldly. Colorful nylon fabric billows across the dew-laden grass as smiling pilots and breathless spectators walk the grounds and prepare for the stunning display about to launch against the emerald green landscapes when more than 30 balloons rise above the Yampa Valley. Just minutes away, another colorful scene awaits at Art in the Park, where arts and crafts, performances and an interactive children’s area will fill your day.
And the festivities don’t stop there. On Saturday, the Hot Air Balloon Rodeo will feature a nighttime Balloon Glow, in which a half dozen balloons inflated at the base of Steamboat Ski Area glow brightly as their flames dance from within the colorful orbs.
