ABQ Balloon Fiesta - What to do in the down time?

Jump to last reply

We are getting excited about going to Balloon Fiesta again! I'm trying to figure out what to do in the afternoon down time (besides the much needed nap!) on Saturday and Sunday.

Our trip is a short one - Friday lunch till Monday lunch. We will have a rental car for transportation.

I am looking for AFTERNOON activities as mornings and evening/night will already be booked with ballooning events or eating ourselves silly!

Things we've done / places we've visited in previous years:

Old Town ABQ
ABQ Zoo
Hiked Sandia
Acoma Pueblo
Turquoise Museum
Atomic Museum
Craft Show off Fiesta grounds
Artist shop hopping in Santa Fe


I'd love some new ideas! :)
