Balloon Fiesta

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is going to be here before we know it.  This year it runs from October 7th to October 15th.  Two of my favorite events are the Special Shape Glowdeo and the Special Shapes Mass Ascension.  Here’s this years calendar of events

Balloon Fiesta is one of my favorite happenings in Albuquerque.  While it is a whole lot of fun to go down to Balloon Fiesta Park and see the mass ascensions ( 100’s of balloons all going up at once) you can actually see the balloons from all over the city.  Hundreds of hot air balloons flying all at once is an amazing sight.  

Flying High

Flying HighThere were some hot air balloons up today which is really unusual for the middle of December.  There was no wind to speak of though so the balloons were pretty stationary in the air.  They just sort of went up and down like a yo-yos.  It was pretty chilly on the ground though, so it must have been really cold up there.

Hot Air Santa

Tonight is the Twinkle Light parade here in Albuquerque. Always fun to see all the lights twinkling down Central Avenue.
