What could be more
glorious than the sight of hundreds of brilliantly colored hot air balloons set against a blazing Southwestern
sunset? Imagine a blue sky filled with a kaleidoscope of dazzling colors and shapes.
That’s what you’ll experience at the world’s largest balloon event, the Albuquerque Balloon
Your spirits will soar as you watch more than 700 balloons from all over the world ascend into the skies during
your four nights in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Rise bright and early to witness the Opening Ceremonies, which are followed by a grand “Mass
Ascension,” as hundreds of balloons - some vibrant, some whimsical - fill the skies over the grounds.
During your visit, you’ll also enjoy the Balloon Glow, a signature Fiesta event that’s
guaranteed to set the night sky ablaze. Just before dusk, nearly 500 balloons are tethered over the fiesta grounds.
In unison, the pilots set their burners aglow, creating a luminous, magical display, followed by a spectacular
fireworks show. It’s a pyrotechnical display you’ll not soon forget.
Journey Back in Time at
Old Town Albuquerque
Established as a colonial farming village in 1706, Albuquerque’s Old Town neighborhood still bears the mark of
its Spanish founders. Through narrow brick pathways to Spanish-style plazas and 18th-century adobe architecture,
you’ll explore the heritage of Albuquerque’s varied past, guided by a local expert on the region’s history and
Bandelier National Monument
The ancestors of modern Pueblo people built thriving communities in the area called Bandelier about 600 years
ago. Several thousand Ancestral Pueblo dwellings are found among the pink mesas and its sheer-walled canyons.
Escape to Santa Fe and
Old World Wonders
We’ll head north along the picturesque Jemez Mountains to Santa Fe, the oldest capital city in the United
States. We enjoy a walking tour of Santa Fe’s historic district and visit Loretto Chapel. Constructed in 1873, this
striking gothic chapel houses the Miraculous Staircase, a marvel of architectural ingenuity that some claim was designed and
built by St. Joseph himself!
For the shoppers, Santa Fe is a dream come true. Governor’s Plaza is home to countless shops and artists
