Over 80 hot air balloons launch into the air just after dawn on Monday morning during the 2004 Colorado Balloon Classic. This is the first time since 2002 that weather has permitted the ballons to take off. Crowds for the weekend were expected to be greater than 250,000 people. The event draws balloons from across the nation. This is the 28th year of the Balloon Classic, which began with around eighteen balloonists and a crowd of less than one hundred people. The Balloon Classic was recently named one of the Top 100 Events in the USA for 2003 and 2004 by the Event Media Network and one of the Top 100 Events for North America for 2004 by the American Bus Association. photo by Danny Gawlowski
