When I first heard about the balloon fiesta I thought it might be cool. When I heard you have to get up at day break I thought, forget it. When I actually saw over 350balloons go up all at once? It was the most incredible sight I have ever seen. I could not stop taking pictures. This nine day event is a once in a lifetime bucket list item. We loved it so much that we moved here so we could watch it every October. You just can’t believe how incredible it is until you are actually seeing it. They also have many different shaped balloons that will thrill the youngest of hearts. Do not miss it, at least come once in your life. Take a shuttle bus to avoid the long drive into the park. I live five minutes away from the take off field and it took over two hours to,get to their parking lot.
