Mobile RVing - Get Carried Away by the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
December 13, 2018
One of Neil Young's most underrated songs is about it. And it is certainly one of the most uniquely named cities. Albuquerque. Albuquerque, New Mexico is a mid-sized city in the United States and a huge city by New Mexico standards. At 560,000 people, it has plenty to offer tourists throughout the year - Sandia Peak Tramway, the various hikes to explore in the city and nearby, green and red Chile festival, old town, and much more. But nothing compares to what it offers every year in early October. Balloons. Everywhere. The Balloon Fiesta, or also known as the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, has been going on for 46 years and generally sees over 500 balloons go up with hot air. It is the largest balloon rally in the world and a must see for any RVer or anyone interested in seeing something truly spectacular in person.
