Welcome to Balloon Fiesta® Live!

Balloon Fiesta Live! is a live stream of all 14 sessions of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta®. Anchored by Glen Moyer and Art Lloyd Jr. It's the next best thing to being at Balloon Fiesta in person! With multiple and unique camera angles, Glen and Art provide expert commentary based in part on their personal experience in flying hot air balloons and their personal friendship with many of our pilots and crews from our "rooftop studio". Joined in 2018 by fellow balloonist/journalist Ruth Lind, the Balloon Fiesta Live! on-air team has more than 100 years of ballooning and broadcast experience. If you can't be at Balloon Fiesta in person, or just want to relive the experience, check out Balloon Fiesta Live!  using the links below or on Facebook or YouTube.
