5 day / 4 night Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta trip – October 1-5, 2021

Day 1 – Friday, October 1, 2021

4:35 p.m.           Depart Baltimore (BWI) for Albuquerque (ABQ) via Southwest Airlines flight 3294 (subject to change when Southwest’s schedule is announced).

6:55 p.m.           Arrive Albuquerque airport. Meet our local representative in the baggage claim area and be escorted to the awaiting motorcoach.

                Check-in:  Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North

                Dinner on own in area.

 

Day 2 – Saturday, October 2, 2021

                General admission for the morning Balloon Fiesta session included. Because of our 36-year safety record, we are one of the only balloon (aviation) events where you are actually able to walk among the balloons and talk to the pilots. We are a hands-on event, but please be courteous to hot air balloons and do not step on or over any.

5:45 a.m. –   6:45 a.m. Dawn patrol show. Dawn Patrol: The Dawn Patrol began at Balloon Fiesta in 1978, when two California balloonists developed position lighting systems that allowed them to fly at night. Dawn Patrol pilots take off in the dark and fly until it is light enough to see landing sites. Fellow balloonists appreciate the Dawn Patrol because they can watch the balloons and get an early idea of wind speeds and directions at different altitudes. On mass ascension days, about a dozen Dawn Patrol balloons perform the Dawn Patrol Show, a choreographed inflation and launch set to music that has been part of the Balloon Fiesta since 1996. Dawn Patrol inflations begin, weather permitting, at about 5:45 AM, with launch around 6:00 AM.

7:00 a.m. –   8:30 a.m. Mass ascension. Mass Ascensions – a launch of all the participating balloons – have been a feature of Balloon Fiesta since its earliest days and is the most spectacular display of sound and color in all of aviation. During mass ascensions, balloons launch in two waves. Launch directors, also known as “zebras” because of their black-and-white-striped outfits, serve as “traffic cops,” coordinating the launch so balloons leave the field in a safe and coordinated manner. Weather permitting, balloons begin to launch at about 7:15 AM on mass ascension days, led by a balloon flying the American flag to the strains of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

                Free afternoon with lunch on own.

6:00 p.m. –   7:30 p.m. Night Magic Glow. Night Magic™ Glow: The events now known as “balloon glows” were invented in Albuquerque in 1979, when local pilots inflated balloons on Christmas Eve night as a “thank you” to local residents. The sight of balloons lit from within at night like giant holiday ornaments is breathtaking, and “glow” events are now held all over the world. Balloon Fiesta launched its Balloon Glow – the world’s biggest – in 1987. Fiesta Glow “all burns” – when all the balloons fire their burners and light up at the same time – are perhaps the most spectacular single moment in all of Balloon Fiesta. The Balloon Glows – followed by New Mexico’s most spectacular fireworks displays -- are now among Balloon Fiesta’s most popular events.

8:00 p.m. –   9:00 p.m. AfterGlow Fireworks Show.
