Balloon Fiesta | October 8, 2018

Nearly six-hundred balloons covered the sky in Albuquerque on Saturday, October 6, kicking off the 47th year of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The festival started as 13 balloons in 1972 and attracted 887,970 people in 2017, according to Albuquerque Business First.  The hot air balloons will continue to draw gawkers, like me, until October 14.
