Come Touch the Sky
A lot of RVers never miss the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in October. I have friends who go every year and simply plan the rest of their travel year around it.
One reason it holds so much facination for RVers may be that they have something in common with the lifestyle typified by the Ballooner's motto, "Come Touch the Sky".
Then, of course, there's the on-site campground that makes it all so much more comfortable and enjoyable.
This year, the Fiesta is from Sept 30 to Oct 9.
From their website, here is campground information:
