My boys and I went to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta last night and enjoyed a balloon glow event. This is an event in which the hot air balloons stay tethered on the ground and use their "fire" to make their balloon glow in the dark. It is an amazing event to attend. As a spectator you get up close to balloons while they are in the field. The balloons glow in the dark as the pilots fire their burners. It is really cool when all the balloons light up at the same time. Enjoy a video to see the balloons in action.
Here are some addition pictures. This is an annual event in Albuquerque that happens the first week in October and goes for 9 days. So if you are looking for vacation ideas for next year this makes for a great event to attend. To learn more about the Balloon Fiesta, click on the below link.
