"What are Zebras?" Balloon Fiesta Tip by VeronicaG

Balloon Fiesta, Albuquerque: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  A 'Zebra'--focused and ready!
by VeronicaG

Favorite thing: At the balloon fest, spotting Zebras can be fun, but they're not what you might think.

Actually 'Zebras' control the take off sequence for balloons. They're in communication with the entire field and can give permission for balloons to take off that are not designated as the next ones up.

There were quite a number of these folks on the grounds; some had distinctive hats or interesting scarves or jewelry to set them apart. They were extremely busy directing the vast amount of balloons the day we visited.
