Rise and shine to watch over 600 balloons ascend en masse at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the largest hot air balloon festival in the world. The first of the balloons begins its graceful ascent into “the Albuquerque box,” a unique set of air currents that allow the balloons to parade through the sky and return to the site from which they launched. Return to the festival around dusk, as the sky begins to fill with illuminated globes as part of the festival’s Twilight Twinkle Glow event. While at the festival, Go Ahead customers will have access to a heated hospitality tent stocked with drinks and snacks.
