I have years of fond memories shared of getting up at dawn on Labor Day weekend to see the hot-air balloons lift off with our kids and now our granddaughters. But my absolute favorite part of the 37-year festival is the Balloon Glo, when Memorial Park, 1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave., becomes a palette of colors as the balloons are inflated and light up the dark. You can even walk beside them. It starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; the mass ascension begins at 6 a.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Free. Details: 471-4833, balloonclassic.com. Story, Page 3
