The Energizer Bunny Hot "Hare" Balloon will visit Colorado Springs next month for the annual balloon classic.
Voters on Facebook were able to choose three locations the bunny balloon will visit. They are Colorado Springs, St. Louis and Tuscaloosa. The ballon classic happens at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs on September 4, 5 and 6 and the balloon will be there each day, and fly is the weather is agreeable.
The balloon is 166 feet tall when inflated. That's 15 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty. The ears alone are 60 feet tall. It is the world's tallest hot air balloon. It takes a crew of 20 to set up and fly it.
