Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta
The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, held in the second week of October, is the world's largest hot air balloon convention and, undisputedly, the most photographed event on earth.
Last year over 800,000 US and international visitors descended on Albuquerque to watch the desert sky fill with over 700 multicolored and diversely shaped balloons during the event's opening weekend alone. Guests can walk amongst these hot air giants, talk with the pilots and crew, satisfy shutter-happy fingers by snapping the perfect photograph, or just gaze in amazement from below.
