3 …2 …1 …Liftoff! When you think of Albuquerque, more often than not, you think of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Every year we look forward to the beginning of Fall and the hundreds of balloons taking to our never ending skies. This is a “must-see” event for any visitor to Albuquerque. And now, we don’t have to wait until October to enjoy the magic of hot-air ballooning. Hotel Andaluz and Rainbow Ryder Inc., the premier balloon ride operator of the southwest, are teaming up to offer our Enchanted Skies package.
