Balloon Fiesta

Balloon Fiesta is a big deal here in New Mexico and it starts on Saturday. We won’t be going this year because I can’t handle the crowds right now. But I’ve always wanted to go to one of the Balloon Glows. They light up the balloons at night and it looks amazing. I’ve never had the chance to go because any wind at all makes the event dangerous, so it’s been canceled several times. Someday,  I’ll see it in person. I recommend seeing Balloon Fiesta at least once from the field where they are launched, but after that, it’s more fun to be out and see them rising up. You can also chase them and be there when they land. The fiesta park is a madhouse and extremely hard to get in or out of. Plus, before sunrise in October is really cold, so sitting in your car with the heat on is a much more comfortable choice.

  1. Beautiful I have been to tiny one here with film camera and the shots right up in them I go were amazing but always wanted to sit under all those that you got to see.

  2. This is great fun. I listen for the sound of a balloon near my window in my home in Albuquerque and it is alwaya great fun to go out and watch the beautiful balloons from my balcony.
