Today we are taking a visual vacation to Albuquerque, New Mexico during the annual International Balloon Fiesta which takes place each year in October.
The Balloon Fiesta is a nine-day event from October 6 to October 14 typically and has over 500 hot air balloons each year. The event is the largest balloon festival in the world!
While the highly popular and anticipated Hot Air Balloon Festival happens only in October, you can always find a balloon waiting for a sail across blue skies in Albuquerque (Try Rainbow Ryders)! Take a ride during your visit anytime or make it out for the most photographed event in the world, the festival!
