Hi Beverly,

We last went to the balloon festival about ten years ago and thought it was one of the most exiciting "happenings" we had ever experienced. We loved it! We're going back this year and looking forward to the same excitement. Be sure to get there early for the morning ascent (like 4:30 or 5:00 as I recall) and walk thru the large ascent site as the balloons are being prepared for flight. It's an up-close chance to see how it's done, marvel at the size of these balloons, and talk to the owners. Lots of fun. The balloon glows at night are spectacular. Don't miss it. If you get a chance, drive up to Santa Fe and enjoy some of wonderful Southwest food there. We are looking forward to our return visit.
