The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a 9-day, 2-weekend long event held in the beginning of October. Nearly 750,000 visitors come to Albuquerque, New Mexico each year to see the largest assembly of hot air balloons in the World. Here is my experience visiting the Balloon Fiesta in 2017 which hopefully will be useful for those planning to a visit this coming October.
I love living in San Diego. The sunshine, ocean breeze, and the year-round coastal weather make it one of the best place to live in the continental US. However, one thing that I missed the most about living in the Midwest was the green trees in the summer. So my roommate Pop, my cousin Pat and I decided to go to a place that combine the beauty of the Pacific coast with the greenery of the Midwestern states for the Fourth of July weekend. That place was Oregon.
