Beginning October 3, Albuquerque’s skies will come alive with an amazing display of hot air balloons. This world-class festival is a must visit. There are plenty of activities, music, and crazy balloons to entertain kids of all ages, and if you are feeling a bit adventurous, you can climb aboard a balloon for your own ride into the clouds. Rainbow Ryders is the only balloon ride company on site where you can take off during the event, so be sure to call ahead and make your reservations. Although the event will run until the 11th of October, times will fill up quick.
Be sure to take pictures of the 500+ balloons! The event also has a photo contest for spectators to submit their fabulous photos online. Contest winners receive a Canon camera. Sweet!
