About the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
Now celebrating its 39th year, the New Mexico skies will fill with more than 500 colorful balloons floating over Albuquerque’s high desert landscape. The nine-day festival includes a daily launch of hundreds of balloons at Balloon Fiesta Park; hot air and gas balloon competitions; spectacle of Mass Ascensions, Balloon Glows and Special Shapes; and hundreds of booths offering arts and crafts and tasty cuisine.

Although I haven’t been (yet) looks as though Albuquerque offers many affordable adventures including the world’s longest aerial tramway, year-round ballooning, soaring in a glider, skiing and amazing views from the 10,000-foot Sandia Peak.

Additional information about Balloon Fiesta can be found on and visit to plan your Albuquerque vacation.
