Colorado Summer Fun: Windsor’s 2023 ‘Picture the Sky’ Balloon Rally
Labor Day weekend in Windsor will bring the annual Harvest Festival and with that, the annual hot air balloon rally, known as the "Picture the Sky" Balloon Rally.
Gather the gang and get them up early to head into Windsor to see the wonder of hot air ballooning. The Harvest Festival is Windsor's biggest event of the year, and the hot air balloons are a big part of it.
Upwards of 30 pilots will be bringing their aircrafts to Windsor, Colorado, for the balloon rally during Labor Day Weekend; fun, adventure, and majestic-ness, all wrapped into two days, of the three day event.
Thousands of people will be coming to the 100th Windsor Harvest Festival, September 2-4, 2023. There'll be a ton of vendors, tons of food, lots of live music (including the kickoff Street Dance September 2,) the beer garden, the All-Town Barbecue, a pancake breakfast, a pie eating contest, a vintage baseball game, a car show, fireworks, the big parade, and more, including the hot air balloon rally.
Be sure to leave your pets at home for this balloon rally, as the sound of the burners can frighten them and cause damage to their ears, but kids and cameras are more than welcome. Also, be sure to say, "Thanks" to those pilots that come out for the event; it's a lot of work.
