The 51st annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is the perfect weekend getaway! After checking into our hotel on Friday, we will head to Old Town Albuquerque for dinner and shopping on our own. We will depart our hotel early Saturday (4:30 AM) for the morning ascension at the Gondola Club, a private area away from the crowds that includes a huge breakfast buffet. Everyone will be able to get up close and personal with all the hot air balloons right on the launch pad! Next, we will learn the history, science, and art of all types of ballooning at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum followed by lunch at Buca di Beppo. Saturday night's evening glow and Sunday morning's ascension will be enjoyed at the Chaser's Club, an open-air patio that includes dinner and breakfast buffets. After we enjoy the Sunday ascension, the group will depart back to Lubbock.
