Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

Every year in October, Albuquerque, New Mexico hosts the biggest hot air balloon race and fiesta. It is a must see for travellers and photography buffs alike. Every day for a week, hundreds of hot air balloonists fly in the Balloon Fiesta Park. In the dusk hours, they fire up their balloons in what is known as 'After Glows' followed by spectacular fireworks. In the dawn hours, they have the 'Morning Glows' followed by the amazing 'Mass Ascencion' where all balloons slowly ascend into the crisp blue early morning sky.
