“Amazing!”

Balloon Fiesta Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 November 2013

What a pleasant surprise! We were on a roadtrip across the US and happened to be in Albuquerque while the Balloon Fiesta was on. This was the best surprise we had in 10000 miles. There were many vendors selling a variety of food.

I am from Canada so we are accustomed to cold. I was told multiple times that it would be freezing (we went to an event at night). We only needed our winter coats. (Had blankets and sleeping bags and didn't need them.)

This is my favorite fair ever and I can't wait to return. Highly recommended.

A few tips:

1) There are golf carts to help you up/ down the slight hill from the parking lot. Really useful at the end of the night with my son in the stroller.

2) I would pay the $10 to park on site. There was the option of paying $3 to park at a place that looks like it is close. It isn't! They said it is just up the hill and I'm pretty sure I would've spent 1 hr walking in (with my son in stroller).

3) We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Old Town. This allowed us to see some balloons in the morning while enjoying our breakfast buffet. Some balloons even landed in the empty field right outside of our hotel. Amazing!!!
