The Last Hurrah

The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta wrapped up this morning. We did not see balloons this morning. They either stayed over the field or flew south. Last night they had the final fireworks show. Above is a video of the fireworks I recorded from the west bank of the Rio Grande at Beaver Point. Below are stills from the fireworks show.

This armadillo balloon was the last balloon I saw from mass ascension Saturday morning. Most of the balloons flew high to the west on Saturday. The armadillo flew by along the river.

  1. The fireworks were impressive; thanks for the video and pics. I hear them where I am, but don’t see them.

    • Hi Lavinia. They have fireworks five nights out of the 9 day event. They also had skydivers who let off fireworks this year. They have laser light shows and sculpting with chainsaws exhibitions on the field with other entertainment, and lots of food vendors. It’s a really major event with around a million people coming into Albuquerque for it. We only have 2 million people in New Mexico.

    • The fireworks are fun. And it’s nice I only have to walk to the river to get a good fireworks show. Thanks, Randall.
