Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta




logo

For nine days every October, the New Mexico skies are filled with color as hundreds of balloons lift off from Balloon Fiesta Park. Nothing rivals the power of the Mass Ascension on crisp early mornings as these graceful giants leave the ground bringing the Albuquerque sky to life with brilliant colors.

There's something for everyone to enjoy . . . whimsical special shapes filled with equal parts of hot air and wonder, and Balloon Glows with fireworks that create a magical night landscape. This is truly the stuff that dreams are made of!

Albuquerque is the premier ballooning city due to the crystal skies, perfect October climate and a phenomenon called the "Albuquerque Box." With a combination of weather patterns and geographic landscape, the box allows balloonists to control and even retrace their adventure.

Each year balloons come from around the world to participate in the event . It has become the most photographed event in the world.

The 2009 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta will take place on October 3 - 11, 2009.
