Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, University of Minnesota Alumni Association, Friday, 09. October 2020

Dating back more than four decades, the first week in October has brought the smell of roasting chiles and the beautiful, magical moving picture show of hot air balloons sailing silently through the crisp air. Hear the thrilling roar of hundreds of burners simultaneously igniting, turning the Balloon Fiesta Park into a remarkable site with hundreds of thousands of smiling, upturned faces, awestruck by the spectacular beauty of hot air balloons filling the big blue New Mexico sky.

Enjoy hotel accommodations and free time in Old Town Albuquerque, exploring museums, shops and galleries. Sit front and center at the Chasers’ Club hospitality patio for two morning and evening sessions featuring Dawn Patrol and Evening Glow. Join the University of Minnesota Alumni Association for special access to experience the world-renowned attraction, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Travel with us to the Land of Enchantment to enjoy New Mexico’s beautiful landscapes, history and architecture. Experience the world-famous Albuquerque Balloon Festival. Witness the Mass Ascension, which includes more than 500 balloons taking to the sky.

Founded in 1607, Santa Fe is America’s oldest state capital city and third oldest city. A city tour features the Santa Fe Plaza, the Palace of the Governor’s (built in 1610) and a visit to the Loretto Chapel to learn of its mysterious past. Learn more about New Mexico’s Native American history and culture with a visit to Taos Pueblo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring ancient Pueblo homes which have been continuously inhabited for more than 1,000 years.
