BOISE, Idaho — The Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic kicks off Wednesday and will fill the air with colorful hot air balloons.

If you want to get a first hand look, the balloons will lift off from Ann Morrison Park every morning through Sunday. Wednesday is kids day, and is sponsored by Capital Educators. Around 25 balloons will take children up into the air for a tethered ride. Lift offs usually happen no later than 7:30 a.m.

Night Glow is on Friday night.

Organizers ask you to leave your dogs at home, because pets don't appreciate all the loud noises.

Some special balloons from Europe will make an appearance, including Darth Vader and Master Yoda.
