Colorado Balloon Classic Balloon Glo

Come watch the hot air balloons light up in Memorial Park on Sunday, September 1.

We'll find a place away from Memorial Park to meet so we can carpool since it will be quite crowded at this event. Meeting place will be determined later. This will be very informal so I'm not setting an attendee limit.

    No worries Sondra, as soon as I made it to the park Mon morning I got busy
    shooting, and yes..in the glorious sunshine! I'm sure there will be many
    chances for us all to meet up soon. I look forward to meeting new faces :)

    I had a fabulous time. I never was able to meet up with anyone else, mostly
    because of weather issues on Sun night since it was canceled. I ended up
    walking over Mon morning and it was so crowded that I just started
    capturing shots but never really knew where others might have been. No
    worries though I think everyone was busy shooting opportunities

      I would have likewise enjoyed seeing you all there. It was incredible though, wasn't it ?

      It was. I haven't had a chance to download my pictures yet. I'll be watching out for you all at another upcoming Meetup.

    I will be waiting for the "meeting place" myself since I'm the new girl on the block and its just me on my own. I'm looking forward to meeting some new faces behind the cameras ;)

      Did you enjoy the balloons ? We did so very much and I look forward to hearing from you further, too. :D

    My sweetheart and I went on Saturday night for the glow, which was great, and tried again on Sunday morning, but the wind let us down, so we went back up on Monday morning and it was absolutely awesome. I can't wait for next year to do it all over again. I can't wait to see photos from those of you, who did what we did and went at alternate times. It was so amazing though.

    This event was left without a leader. I went to the grounds, although it rained for a hour and there was no confirmation if the balloons were going to be filled.

    The news said they were still going to stand at 8pm unless it was pouring. I'm
    heading over now to see if I can get some shots.

    I will try to find you in the morning only if the sun is shining. I did the launch
    Sat but it was mostly cloudy. Hope to see you then.

    Ok. I'm backing out. Tge rain clouds haven't disapated enough for ne to stay. Good luck for everyone else who hasn't given up hope.

    I'll be back in the morning to try again. I'll be on the east side of the lake by the playground. ..but on tge waters edge. :)

  • Sondra M.

    We are in car waiting, hoping it will blow over like last night. I'll try to make it back in the morning. Carolyn, thanks for offer to meet at your house. I didn't see it until I got here.

      You can still come and wait at my house, I'm just down the street and it's more comfortable than the car...730 Vermijo, offo f Handcock, 3 blocks going west. Really, no problem. I'm going to see if it blows over myself.

      September 1, 2013

  • Pamela F.

    I stand corrected. Just spoke with a vender he said that the balloons are still suppose to stand at 8 tonight. Although weather pending.

    September 1, 2013

    • Mike G.

      The big part of the storm hasn't hit us yet...but looks to be a fast moving storm.

      I'm close by, but staying dry in my car for now.

    I believe we got rained out. I have arrived to takd a look. The venue is closing down for the night. Some booths are hanging on. But the weather is the show. Maybe tomorrow morning? Anyone want to meet then?

    September 1, 2013

    • Mike G.

      I'd give it until about 6pm tonight before making a final decision on the glo

      Since I'm just down the street...I can just zip on up just in case the rain stops. I'd really, really like to capture just one balloon "glowing"

    It would be wonderful if anyone could take the lead and find a spot for all to meet at once at the park, then make a post for everyone else to read and then gather to???

      Carol could I meet you at your place?

    I need to cancel. I went this morning and it was a bust. I feel a cold coming on now.

    1 · September 1, 2013

  • James H.

    With much regret, I'm backing out from this afternoon's shoot. I've been feeling lousy the last few days and my allergies have turned into a sinus infection. The meetup is still on. It was informal anyway, and never really did require an event leader. I will create a gallery for you all to upload your photos to, and look forward to seeing the posts on Facebook. Stay dry!

      So sorry, hope you feel better in no time.

      September 1, 2013

  • James H.

    We can meet at the Citadel Mall in the parking lot outside of Dillard's. I'll have a full car already but if we caravan it might be easier to meet up. If the weather looks bad, I might back out because it feels like I'm coming down with something and have a very busy week. I'll post here tomorrow.

    1 · August 31, 2013

      I'll meet you all at the park. I'll be checking messages to see where everyone is at.

      Hey, Mari. If you use Facebook you can add me on there at [masked] and we can exchange numbers and get in touch when we are up there for the event. May not be just during the hours shown herein.

    We will be onsite on and off for the event over the weekend, taking photos like fiends, no doubt. When a meeting point is determined, let us know and we'll try to catch you there. Otherwise, we will see you around the Park, we hope.

    Since my 'walking and standing' time is limited, I will not try to go with the group. Thank you

    I live at corner of Farragut and Pikes Peak. There is a parking lot on the East side that can take 3 or 4 cars if you are here early. The lot fills up when there is an event.

    August 27, 2013

    Carolyn, a spot to park at your house would be a help. But I wouldn't get there til 6:30 ish

    I live on Vermijo just 3 blocks west of Memorial Park. If you all end up car pooling, you can park at my house and/or on my street before it fills up. I can save parking if it will help then we can walk up to the park????
