Balloons grounded due to high winds

COLORADO SPRINGS - Hundreds of spectators at Memorial Park are leaving with a sense of disappointment after high winds grounded the balloons on the final day of the last Colorado Balloon Classic.

The event, a Colorado Springs tradition for 38 years, drew thousands to Memorial Park over the weekend.

This weekend's event is slated to be the last Balloon Classic, after event organizers decided to pull out of the Springs for 2015 over a disagreement with the city about the allocation of tourism tax dollars.
