The Colorado Balloon Classic was organized in 1977 and become the largest and longest continuously running hot air balloon festival in the Rocky Mountain Region. The event is held in Memorial Prak, in Colorado Springs, off Pikes Peak Avenue between Hancock Ave. and Union Blvd. This is a wonderful colorful event to enjoy Labor Day week. Packed with events, vendors, food and ballons!
Living in Manitou Springs is wonderful, tucked up against the base of Pikes Peak. Operating the Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast is a challenge and brings great joy. I love working from home is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I love to cook in the morning, filling the inn with wonderful aromas. Meeting people from all over the country and the world for that matter. What a pleasure .www.avenuehotelbandb.com
