Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®, October 4th – 6th and October 16th, 2017
Looking for a Balloon Fiesta experience without all of the crowds and traffic? Join us just before or right after the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta® for a spectacular flight a midst up to 50 balloons!
Make sure you bring your camera! The early morning adventure begins as you meet Rainbow Ryders at Balloon Fiesta Park for check-in. From there the pilots will begin the inflation process, giving you the opportunity to become an involved, “hands on” crew member as the gentle giants come to life. You may also choose to observe inflation and take pictures as the sun rises over the Sandia Mountain Range.
At lift off you’ll embark upon a journey of uniqueness. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Rio Grande Valley and majestic Sandia Mountains while floating across the sky. Send your greetings to the earthbound folks below!
After landing, enjoy a celebratory toast and post-flight refreshments to end your safe and memorable adventure. You will be presented with a flight certificate and balloon flight pin to commemorate your aeronautical experience.
