Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
What did the balloon say to the doctor?
“I feel lightheaded!”
Interesting Fact: In 1975 Albuquerque was looking at hosting the World Championships again, but the event was scheduled for October. So the fiesta was moved to correspond with the championships. To maintain interest in Albuquerque’s bid to host the championships, a balloon rally was held in February of that year. Autumn being a far better flying time than February, the event has remained in early October to the present day. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albuquerque_International_Balloon_Fiesta#History )
Lovely capture! How I would love to get there for the Balloon Fest one of these years.
It is definitely one of those things that is definitely worth to see with your own eyes. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
I have good memories of the year I visited… up at 3:00am and arriving at the park by 5:00am… it was fantastic watching all the balloons lift off.
It is quiet a sight. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your experience with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
