"Four-Legged Patrols" Balloon Fiesta Tip by VeronicaG

Balloon Fiesta, Albuquerque: 33 reviews and 49 photos

  Patrolling the Fiesta
by VeronicaG

As we were walking to the North end of the field to view the morning ascension, we came across these policemen on handsome mounts. They made a very appealing picture!

We wanted to plant ourselves at that point on the grounds, because the balloons were going to drift to the North/Northwest--and what a spectacle!

Although many balloons were launched seconds after each other, the majority drifted North, but a few headed West. As we watched the television Sunday morning, it was reported that someone's balloon landed on the roof of a house.

Residents welcome the balloonists by displaying a white sheet--this signals they can land in that particular yard.
