Albuquerque Ballon Fiesta - What to Bring?

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I are spending three days in Albuquerque and are going to the International Balloon Fiesta this year. I've found a lot of great tips on here about the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, but I haven't found anything about what to bring. I know I should dress warmly for the morning sessions, but should we bring blankets or stadium-type chairs to sit on? Or are there chairs available (outside of the VIP areas)? Also, we're staying at a hotel with a kitchenette (The Residence Inn right by the Park & Ride at Cliff's Amusement Park) and I was considering making a thermos of hot chocolate to bring with us. Does the balloon fiesta allow outside food and drink?

Thanks so much!
