Update: I scouted this last w/e and all parking will be in surrounding areas OUTSIDE memorial park. The good news is there is plenty of parking in the area. Below is a link to a map of the park and designated parking areas.
In front of the Ice Center Building (noted in the below map)

Also, if you are not planning on attending please remove yourself from the RSVP list
The Colorado Balloon Classic (a division of Colorado Springs Balloon Classic, Inc.) was organized in 1977 and has grown to be the largest and the longest continuously running hot air balloon festival in the Rocky Mountain Region as well as the State of Colorado.
I am planning on being there all day (including the morning lift offs) but the focus of this meet-up is night shots which starts at 7:30 PM (Lay out Balloons for Balloon Glo) and 8:00PM (Inflate Balloons for Balloon Glo). There is also a concert which starts at 5:00pm
Plenty of opportunities for our photo eyes and to work on our night photography. Be sure to bring a tripod as well
Below is a link to the balloon schedule
I will followup with specific meet-up details as the event nears
