Here’s looking at you, Balloon Fiesta 2015! We’re ready to launch!

With only a few days remaining before Balloon Fiesta 2015 officially begins on October 3rd, we’re launching a series of posts based upon our experiences at the 2014 event.

Spanning the days of October 3 to 11, Balloon Fiesta 2015 promises more color, more variety, more excitement . . . well, more of everything.  But even if you can’t make it to Albuquerque, New Mexico, we hope you’ll enjoy taking a look back with us and reading more of what makes this event one of our all-time special travel memories.

      You know, you may be right. Clowns and jesters scare me a little, too. These balloons do loom large on the field, and you’re staring at these giant eyes! Thanks for taking a look. Come back to the series. Hopefully, you won’t be frightened away!

        I like balloons generally! I’ve also heard they look beautiful when lit up at night, although I’ve never seen that myself.

        Anyway, I’ll come back and look at the others, but if there are more clowns, I might look from behind the couch.

    Always an amazing time. Last year I went to the one in Queensbury, NY. The specialty balloons are my favorite. Darth Vader was in NY. One of only a handful of U.S. appearances. Looking forward to more!

      I totally understand your hubby’s perspective. It wasn’t on our bucket lists either. But a job opportunity came up to train teachers in an Albuquerque school. And what a gift that the training occurred at the same time as Balloon Fiesta. Now, I’m trying to find a way to go back!! Also, we went two afternoons only to be turned away — high winds, no launch! The mornings, however, were glorious!
