One of the highlights of living in Albuquerque is the International Balloon Festival. Held every year since 1972, this nine day long tribute to the hot air balloon celebrates the works of art that are these sky rockets.  

The festival began as part of a celebration for a local radio station. Only 13 balloons were present but that didn’t stop some of the most beloved traditions of the festival from shaping such as the annual race of the balloons

Originally, the festival was held in February but it was changed to October in 1975, as the organizers realized that the weather was better in the autumn.

One of the most memorable parts of the celebration is the mass ascension, where all of the hot air balloons taking place in the festival launch at approximately 7:15 in the morning. At night, large numbers of balloons are lit by propane burners, making the night sky illuminate with these orbs of wonder. The balloons stay static during this event.

There are many other events taking place during the festival including races, target competitions, piloting showoffs and other skills. Rest assured, the world’s largest hot air balloon festival won’t be going anywhere any time soon so go on and enjoy it!
