Just hours later, I asked him if he had changed his mind. Totally. 100%. The Balloon Fiesta is magical. I'm not just saying that. You will literally be like a little kid, in awe over all the balloons. I just wish my pictures could do it justice. I do know that the ABQ fiesta is the only one left in the United States that allows you to be on the field while the balloons are filling, and taking off. It is INCREDIBLE!
You absolutely have to make it to Albuquerque one October and experience it. They have special shapes, balloon glows (at night) and then of course mass ascension early in the morning! Hooray!
These are just a few of the photos I snapped,
|How FUN is this!? It was on a chase truck and I thought what a lovely idea. :)|
|The ZIA balloon. Crazy story. I was close friends with a grandson of this family team and my husband's family was close friends with the mother. And now we are all connected. Small world!|
|These are my FAVORITE! A sweet little bee family. I wish I had a better picture. Sometimes the mama and daddy "kiss" It's pretty much adorable!|
Maybe I'll see ya'll at the fiesta next year!
