2016 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

September 29 - October 7, 2016 Albuquerque, NM

The Largest Hot Air Balloon Festival in the World!
Put hundreds of giant, brightly-colored hot air balloons in the same place on a perfect October morning, have them rise all at once into New Mexico’s impossibly blue sky, and you have one of the man-made wonders of the world. This is why you will not want to miss out on all the fun and activities we have planned for the 2015 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

4 event passes per person to any of the following: Dawn Patrol Show, opening ceremonies, mass ascension, America’s Challenge gas balloon race, balloon glow, fireworks, special shape mass ascension, and the Wells Fargo Special Shape Glowdeo. Extra tickets will be available for purchase, or you can sit back in your lawn chair to watch the balloons fly right over your motorhome!
