2019 ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO
The Balloon Fiesta annually held in October. Tim and I took my mom on an 8-day trip through West Texas, New Mexico & Arizona. Ending with one of her bucket-list items (and ours) of visiting the Balloon Fiesta. We're so glad we did since it was canceled in 2020 and who knows what the future will bring for large events.
It was amazing. I've said it before --pretty much anytime I talk about it-- that the experience is sort of beyond words. Everywhere you turn there's a balloon. Up. Down. To your side. Almost below you but a whistle blows and they keep you from stepping on it. You can literally push through them. No kidding. It's amazing.
