One of the most glorious sights you could ever witness is the launching of the hot air balloons at the annual fiesta in Albuquerque; For fifty years people have been celebration in the high desert to launch their dirigibles all at once.
These giant hot air balloons come in the most bright & vibrant colors & patterns, making the entire skyline a labor of art, if only for a brief phase of time. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is 1 the best events you can ever experience, & I highly request checking it out, then when the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta first started in 1974, there were only 13 balloons. Now there can be a hundred times that number! As a pro tip, let me tell you that if you come to see the balloon fiesta, take time out to stop by 1 of the amazing Albuquerque cannabis dispensaries first. With a little Albuquerque Gold (that’s a locally grown kind of cannabis) in your program those balloons will look even brighter & more vibrant; Did you assume that the only year they didn’t hold the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta was in 2021, because of lingering COVID19 concerns? With that year being skipped, next year will be the 50th time the Albuquerque fiesta will be held, it should be the largest & boldest ever! Of course there is a lot more to do in Albuquerque, NM than smoke cannabis & watch the hot air balloons! They have some amazing fusion steakhouses, & from what I hear the music scene is pretty remarkable, too.
