Each year, thousands flock to New Mexico to visit our southern neighbors and experience the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The event, taking place October 6-14, 2018, is the largest ballooning event on earth, the most photographed event on earth, and the largest annual international event held in the United States.
Albuquerque hotels fill quickly for the event and it can be congested driving around. Those willing to make the 60 mile trek north will find a little bit more space and less traffic. Great lodging deals are available as well. Temps are a bit cooler, the air a bit crisper and the colors a bit more vivid. Here are a few recommendations to help you to experience the event in a whole new way, The City Different way.
