Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta
For nine days in October, the New Mexico skies are painted as hundreds of balloons lift off from Albuquerque’s Balloon Fiesta Park. Nothing rivals the power of mass ascension on a crisp early morning as these graceful giants leave the ground to take their place in the cerulean desert sky. Plan now to make sure you are a part of this “Magic in the Sky”. View the mass ascension as over 800 balloons ascend at one time and the Special Shapes Glow. Additional highlights include are Old Town, San Felipe de Neri Church, and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Then it’s only a short drive to Santa Fe, the oldest seat of government in the United States. Famous for its unique mix of Spanish and Indian cultures, the rows of streets of Santa Fe are lined with buildings of distinctive design, abode houses, and interesting shops. Your visit to this historic city features the Palace of the Governors and the Historic Square.
