Albuquerque balloon festival
Hey, Bro! Do you know, that Albuquerque balloon festival bears the unofficial title of “the most photographed event in the world”. Going there, be sure to take your camera to shot stunning photos. Well, such an event is definitely better to see once with your own eyes, than a hundred times to hear about it from people!
Every autumn over 100,000 people come to Albuquerque to see how hundreds of colorful balloons in the sky over the Rio Grande valley will spin in a fascinating dance!. This festival began about forty years ago with only 13 balloons, and today, about 750 teams of aeronauts take part in this great event every year. Albuquerque balloon festival takes place on the territory of the Balloon Fiesta Park, Where the Museum of Aeronautics is also open.
Balloon Fiesta consists of 14 “sessions”, and every session consists of a certain type of activities. Also, there are 2 types of sessions: morning and evening. Morning session takes place on each of the 9 days of the event, while there are 5 evening sessions throughout the event. The morning session usually starts at 4:30 a.m. when the park opens, and the evening session begins at 3:30 p.m. There are no balloon activities between sessions!
