Hundreds of Hot Air Balloons fill the sky!Flag review
Every October, Albuquerque hosts the world famous, International Balloon fiesta at the balloon fiesta park! An event where HUNDREDS of balloonists from all over the world come and soar to the sky! Hot Air Balloons, EVERYWHERE you look! What child wouldn't be intrigued by this!? It truly is a "once in a lifetime" experience that my children and I still talk about today...asking, "can we go again next year!?" In my opinion, the best day to go with the kids is the during the "Special Shapes Rodeo" or the "Special Shape Glowdeo" - Imagine Hot Air Balloons that are shaped as cows, bees, boats, monkeys, houses, and more! Nearly 100 different special shape balloons! Plenty of venders, food, and games as well.
Tips for Families
Plan to spend a few days in Albuquerque, the weather determines everything. The wind has to be "just right." Dress in layers, those mornings can get chilly! Don't forget to have the kids ask the pilots for a trading card, the kids had a blast collecting them all!
