Description

Come join the fun in the "Duke City" for annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, an event lasting nine days through the first two weekends in October. Billed as the world's most photographed event, see why more than one million visitors flock to Albuquerque each fall to witness spectacular dawn skyscapes as 1,000 balloons color the sky during mass ascensions. The fiesta features special shape balloons with exclusive mass ascensions, flying competitions, and the popular nighttime "Glowdeo." Sample great local wines during the opening weekend of the event at "Fiesta del Vino," see website for details. Park and ride from the malls around town and avoid the traffic jams. Admission: USD6. Children 12 and under are free.
