Every year, hundreds of thousands of upturned faces gaze at the rainbow of colors that fill the sky over Albuquerque. The annual festival is held in October, and more than 500 balloons participate to provide an entertaining festival. Whether you’re interested in hot air balloons or not, this festival is a fantastic family outing. The weather in New Mexico is beautiful at this time of year, so bring a blanket and an outdoor picnic.
