“This year’s theme of ‘Desert Kaleidoscope’ perfectly captures the Balloon Fiesta experience,” said Tania Armenta, President & CEO of Visit Albuquerque. “Only in Albuquerque can you walk among more than 500 hot air balloons as they make their way from the field to hundreds of feet above, painting the skies in a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes.”
Visitors to Balloon Fiesta can experience early-morning mass ascensions, evening balloon glow events, competitions and live music, as well as the opportunity to sample Albuquerque’s world-famous green chile.
In addition to all the activities surrounding Balloon Fiesta, visitors can immerse themselves in what locals refer to as the “magical season” in Albuquerque, with chile roasting, fall colors and vibrant blue skies. And with several museums, exciting outdoor adventure opportunities, and unique restaurants and shopping, there’s always something to do when the balloons aren’t in the air.
