Live Broadcast of 2016 ABQ Balloon Fiesta

Recommended Posts

Sure miss watching live this annual event in ABQ. At least we can view it on-line but still not the same.

 

Enjoy and hope you can see it in person at least one time in your life.

Looks like another good morning for the balloons in ABQ.

Impressive and very colourful! Some of the unconventional designs look to be major feats of engineering. :cool:

Yes the special shapes are very neat. A lot of them are used to advertise their sponsor's products like the Wells Fargo stagecoach  and pink pigs/piggy banks and  the Creamland dairy cow.

Was there with my wife yesterday from dawn patrol, mass ascension, chainsaw carving,  twilight glow and fireworks.

 

We saw later on the TV highlights that the winds were favorable for splash and go's in the Rio Grande for some. Perfect weather, perfect winds and a perfect day.

 

Definitely something to put on the bucket list for the discriminating aviation buff.

 

Runs all week with the competitions beginning Monday

Hard to find family friendly activities that does not cost a arm and a leg to get into. Glad you both enjoyed your ballooning weekend.
