The 2017 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta | I am New Mexico

The 2017 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

The 2017 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta – My wife, my son and I trekked to the balloon fiesta park this morning. Despite being locked in traffic for more than an hour and watching both the dawn patrol and the mass ascension from our car on the freeway exit, we managed to get down to the park in time to see most of the balloons go up. Perfect timing if you ask me!

The weather was great and the balloons were able to navigate pretty well. The famed Albuquerque Box didn’t quite have the perfect weather conditions for the balloonists to be able to control their flights as well, but the sky was full and just about all the balloons took flight, including a new motorcycle balloon which I hadn’t seen before.

It was the second day of the annual event and you’ll be sure to see more content from us. Scroll through the images that we took today. Check out the video at the very bottom of the page as well.
