Since many of you seemed to enjoy my post about the OC Great Park balloon, I want to let you in on a little gem I found out about by reading an in-flight travel magazine on the plane to Wisconsin.
It turns out that during one week every October, the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico hosts a festival called Balloon Fiesta. This festival has been happening in early October for over 20 years, and has come to involve over 700 balloons, all floating together over the Rio Grande.
How cool is that?!
This is the stuff my dreams are made of.
(Balloon-ride tickets start around $150 per person, so....someday. !!)
