Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

We are on our way to the International Balloon Fiesta and and will be staying Monday-Thursday in the VIP West (Harvest Host) area. Anyone else heading that way and/or interested in an impromptu meet-up?

We are currently Airstreamers, but ordered our Ollie last week, so expectant family members.  We’re full-timers and heading to Alaska next summer. We’d love to meet up with other travelers.

Hi Jason, Kelly and Stormy! The balloon festival sounds like so much fun. Enjoy! My husband Kirk and I pick up our new Ollie December 5. Getting ready for our drive out to Tennessee in a few weeks. It seems that we have a lot in common with you guys (looked you up on Instagram). We too love IPAs, wineries, sailing, adventures and we have a silly standard poodle named Galena. Would love to meet you guys someday. Our home base is Twin Falls, Idaho. See you down the road. Carrie Peterson

We had to cancel a group outing a couple years back (covid). I'll look forward to your photos!

I'm guess by your name that you are also sailors. Welcome aboard!

Sailors of sea, sailors of land - welcome!

A "number" of years ago my wife and I drove through Albuquerque on our way to a hiking trip out of Silver City, NM and stopped at a motel for the night.

When we got up the next morning the sky was covered with balloons!  It was either the first or second year of the festival and we did know a thing about it.

Have a great time!
