Dating back more than four decades, the first week in October has brought the smell of roasting chili peppers and the beautiful, magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing silently through the crisp air. Guests from all over the world come to Albuquerque to celebrate ballooning. From its modest beginning in 1972 with 13 balloons launching
from a shopping mall parking lot, Balloon Fiesta has grown to more than 500 balloons and multiple events at the custom- designed, 365-acre Balloon Fiesta Park. It is the largest and most photographed event of its kind, and it is the largest annual international event held in the U.S.
