Depends! Oh Dress in layers, you are up before the Sun. we have seen frost in the AM and shorts and T-shirts in the afternoon.

The Tram on Sandia MT. The Bullet train to Santa FE. Los Alamos Labs, Old Town, The Zoo, Nuclear Museum, lots of great restaurants, and the Petrograph Parks. And there are many Casinos.

Come to the Sid Sutter Sculpture and we will sign you up for a Chase Crew. The best way to get the real feel of the AIBF.

Welcome to iRV2

I assume you mean the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. There are many others throughout the country.

We went two years ago and had absolutely beautiful, warm temperatures. A light jacket in the early morning (we were on a crew team) and at evening is all we needed. Of course, every year is different. Enjoy!

We were there last year and had great weather.Cool at night in the fifties, warm
like sixties and seventies during the day.All places mentioned above are good day
trips. Speedo optional.

We were there a couple years ago and helped crew. Way too fun!!! However we froze our buns off in the early AM before dawn patrol and launch. Once the sun came up we were peeling layers like crazy

Can be around freezing early morning, usually warms to 60-70's during the day. Nights can get cool once the sun sets. Being fairly high elevation, ABQ is ~5300 ft, and lower humidity, we have normal 30-35 degree temp swings from the low to the high. The sun really heats things up.

So you probably don't need short pants, but you should have some layers to take off or put on depending on time of day.

Bring money, we need the tourist spending!
