Enchanted Skies
Dale Tanis
 
Every October just as the weather is beginning to turn from summer to fall, The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta comes to town. As you drive into work during the week, it is not uncommon to see a couple hundred hot air balloons in the sky. On the weekends there are mass ascensions that have included up to 750 hot air balloons being launched in waves until all of them are airborne. There are all sorts of races and competitions for the pilots to participate in. Spectators are invited to go down to "the field" and wander amongst the colorful giants as they are inflated and taking off. Another event in the evening is the Balloon Glow where the pilots inflate the balloons and fire the burners on high to illuminate them against the evening sky. This event has been celebrated every year since 1971 and truly transforms the city, presenting residents and visitors alike with Enchanted Skies.
