Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

By Stephen Gillis

In the pre-dawn air the sulfuric scent of combusting propane gas lingers, while the desert soil reverberates with the blasting of fire cannons. Illuminated faces gather around the burners as hot air slowly levitates colorful nylon fabric. The ascension has commenced with the rising sun over the horizon. Giant, colorful balloons appears before your eyes like a Jackson Pollock painting. Specks of color spot the blue New Mexico sky, creating a master work of art courtesy of hundreds of hot air balloons. The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta has begun.

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is the largest display of hot air balloons in the world. That must explain why it's the most photographed event in America. People from all over the globe gather to witness the spectacle. Whether you are adding to the vast aerial fleet or enjoying the fiesta from the ground, fun is to be had and memories are to be made.

A great option for those wanting to enjoy the festivities from the ground is to go glamping! For the first time ever, Glamping Hub is proud to announce that there will be fantastic glamping accommodations available on-site, bookable here.

You don't have to settle for camping when you could be spending the weekend glamping in the lap of luxury. The spacious tent can fit either a queen-size bed or two twin beds, and additionally features a private bathroom and shower! Hang out with your fellow glampers in your own private lounge area where you can watch the balloons soar across the horizon without having to leave the proximity of your tent. Chill out by the campfire and roast sausages and s'mores, and spend quality time with your family while gathering around the picnic table. You won't want to miss out on the fun and beauty of this event, enjoying magical moments with those most special in your life.

The accommodation is only available from October 6th to the 15th (the duration of the fiesta). With close to one million people predicted to attend this year, you can expect that these accommodations are going fast. Next year, we will have an even larger presence at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, as Glamping Hub hosts its very own glamping village!

While enjoying all of the beautiful sights to be seen at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, make sure to stay in the most comfortable, luxurious setting offered on the grounds. For an unforgettable experience, book with Glamping Hub and enjoy a stay unlike any other!
