Exciting, fantastic, wonderful, awesome, cool, beautiful, gorgeous....all over-used words and none of them come close to describing Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. It is always the first weekend through the second weekend of October. This year is starts Saturday, October 6th and ends Sunday the 14th. Cinnamon Morning is an easy drive to the balloon field and there is still some availability. A brunch is served at 9:30 and often it is still warm enough to eat on the patio. Plan on feeling like a kid again as you watch the balloons inflate and float into the blue New Mexico skies.
