Albuquerque International Balloon Fiest



Featuring more than 500 balloons, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is the world’s premier ballooning event. Why Albuquerque? Because of the mild October temperatures and a phenomenon known as the "Albuquerque box" (a set of predictable wind patterns that allows pilots to land close to their launch sites), this Southwestern city is the ideal spot for ballooning. The mass ascension takes place at Balloon Fiesta Park’s 78-acre launch field — the equivalent of 54 football fields.
