Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta
Imagine all the colors of the rainbow flying through the sky! Imagine flying cows…soaring houses…huge butterflies…kissing bees…OH, watch out for that seven story tall saguaro!... then imagine a similar scene occurring again and again, every half hour from daylight until the sun is high overhead! This is the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. We will rise early…very early…so we will be at the launch field before the sun is up and wander through the excitement that is a Hot Air Balloon launch. The tone is electric. As the Balloon Meister gives the go-ahead to launch the Dawn Patrol, a cheer goes up, a dozen or so specially selected balloons rise into the pre-dawn sky, glowing as they go in an early morning treat. As each balloon is launched, a new one fills its space on the ground…over 600 balloons will float on the wings of heated air before the morning becomes too warm to fly. It is then that we will drive over to take a tour of Old Town Albuquerque. We will go back to the hotel for a much-needed nap before we once again head to the launch field, set up our chairs, and enjoy the Evening Glow of tethered balloons and a fireworks display that defies description.
Tour includes entry in the Balloon Fiesta, city tour, lodging with breakfast at the hotel, transportation, and snacks & bottled water on the coach.
