You've never seen hot air balloons like this before. A couple weeks ago, Albuquerque, New Mexico held its 42nd annual International Balloon Fiesta. It's a 9-day event where over 700 balloons see liftoff. It's the largest hot air balloon festival in the entire world and we were on hand to capture the action.

Such a cool experience. In 2014 the festival will run from October 4th until the 12th. Be sure and arrive early, dress in layers, and bring sunscreen.

A truly amazing experience both in the early morning and in the evening. Had tickets to the Gondola Club. Well worth the money.

Brought the family out to see this. We stayed across the street at the Balloon Fiesta RV Park. The RV Park was pretty dusty, but fun nonetheless. We happened to have windy days when we stayed, so we didn’t see much balloon action. But, we enjoyed shopping and eating in Old Town Albuquerque. I would still recommend it!

This is one festival not to be missed. Be sure to stay up late, the Balloon Glow at night is magical.
