We will be staying in the Premium spots from Oct 6 to Oct 9. Could you give a description of your balloon so we could look for it? We are on the waiting list for the Presidents lot, but I'm not holding out alot of hope.

Don, the name of my balloon is "Flashover" it is primarily yellow with a rainbow colored wave running around it. You can go to www.FlyAwes.com to see picture of it.

Marc, just look at the pictures. I don't see how you fly in such a traffic jam. We'll be looking for you.

Oh, ya'll enjoy the Fiesta! My husband and I chased balloons for many years in Orlando and Albuquerque and went to 3 of the Fiestas. There's nothing to compare to 400-500 balloons all up in the air at the same time! Wish we could be there this year.

For the newcomers: We have been to the Balloon Fiesta three times; twice in our motor home. We stayed in the dry camping area, about 1/4 mile south of the launch field. There are shuttle buses that come around every 15 min. that you can ride to the launch field and return, free. They also have a honey bucket (I think it's $5)

We've never had a problem getting reservations. We do it online. In fact a friend decided to go with us a week before we left and were able to get a reservation. We were parked around the field where all the balloon games take place and the balloons come down so low we could even talk to the pilots and crew. It's a blast! Last time we were parked on the 50-yard line and sat in our chairs at 7:00 a.m. with coffee and donuts watching the balloons flying about 20 ft. above us.
You can go online to make your reservations and buy tickets...we got six tickets for the price of five. I think the URL is Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.com or you can find it with Google.
This is an awesome experience, seeing 700-800 balloons all launching at the same time, and you can walk around the launch field and watch as the balloons are being aired up and launched, with about 100,000 other people. Take your camera, take warm clothes as it can be pretty chilly in the mornings. We rate this event as a 10-plus, and we're not ballooners.
Everyone should experience this at least once in a lifetime.
