A balloon fiesta, on steroids!

Like no other fiesta we have ever seen. This puts the Bristol Balloon Fiesta in the shade. We have never seen so many balloons, of all shapes and sizes, ascend like this. What... read more

Like no other fiesta we have ever seen. This puts the Bristol Balloon Fiesta in the shade. We have never seen so many balloons, of all shapes and sizes, ascend like this. What a fantastic day out. Remember, to pack warm clothing as its freezing before the sun rises. This is a must for any balloon enthusiasts. Brilliant. We are... More

Until you see 1000 balloons launch in 3 hours, you have not been to a balloon festival. Go, get there before dawn, and start taking pictures. This is truly a great expereince.

This is a once in a lifetime experience for those who have never been up close and personal with hot air balloons. The park is maintained exceptionally well by the city of Albuquerque, so you are comfortable lying in the grass. The balloonists are extremely proud and happy to discuss their adventures or what makes these awesome hot air balloons... More

This was an amazing event. We planned on coming here for a long time and finally. We left from Santa Fe at 5am in the morning to make sure to see the ascension of the balloons. Its a bit early but worth it. It was sight to remember. Watching them put the air into the balloons and then watching them... More

This is the place to be in Oct. to see all the different shapes that balloons come in. to see 499 to 600 balloons going up in the air is something. And you are right down there on the ground with them well worth a vacation to come and see. dress warm as the early morning hrs. can be chilly

We were there for three days. We stayed at a hotel in downtown Albuquerque and took a bus out to the event each day. They picked up at several of the downtown hotels in the early morning and you had a choice of multiple return times in the afternoon or evening. Bus avoided most of the parking lot traffic and...

Great place to stay! Breakfast was fantastic, staff was friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable. Great value for the money. We were there for the Balloon Fiesta, the hotel put tables outside for breakfast so we could watch the balloons overhead, totally made our trip!

Balloon fiesta makes you feel like you're 5 again! There is a lot to do other than just watch the balloons as well. There is plenty of food trucks, carts, etc and THE BEST breakfast tacos. Definitely go to the morning ascension and BUNDLE up! It is ridiculously cold in the morning but does get warmer in the afternoon so... More

This is definitely something you can easily do more than once as it is really spectacular and lot's of fun. This event takes place once in year, usually around the month of october. We usually get a schedule of the... More
