It's been a few years since we had the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. We are bringing it back for 2015! Join the Albuquerque ARTCC as we host our "Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta" event! Fly your heavy metal jets into Albuquerque or just hang around the airport and do some scenic VFR flying. It's great weather right now in the west, so take advantage of the smooth air.

The event runs from 2359Z-0400Z(+1) on Saturday, October 10th, 2015.
