The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. It’s a staple for anyone who lives in New Mexico or is from New Mexico. October really isn’t complete without hot air balloons. Until I moved away from New Mexico I went to see the balloons take off from the field every single year. It’s a lot of fun and a bit chaotic as it requires you to wait a long time and then a ton of action happens all at once with thousands of people all around you. Six hundred balloons went up into the air while we were there yesterday morning. It is spectacular to say the least. The girls were in awe. Their favorite balloon of all was the three story high princess.
Have you ever been to a balloon event? Do you have one in your area?
