Thursday is day two for the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic. Wednesday was kids day, during which children were giving a free tethered flight in a hot air balloon. It was called the gift of flight and more than 3,000 children got a chance to take the short journey.
Thirty-one balloons will take to the air at about 7:30 this morning. The balloon classic will continue every day through Sunday, with the Night Glow scheduled for Friday night just after sunset.
