Balloon Fiesta Mass Ascension
The Balloon Fiesta Mass Ascension at the Albuquerque Balloon Festival is the highlight of the show. It was honestly one of the coolest things I have every experienced. I got up around 4am and left the Albuquerque Sheraton to go to the Balloon Park. I got up extra early incase I got lost, and luckily it was easy to find. The traffic was insane though. Check out my tips on the Balloon Fiesta here. The mass ascension is on a Saturday and there are two for every show each year. I got very lucky last year because the weather was perfect for the kick off mass ascension!
