Balloon Fiesta

Jump to last reply

I heard that the best thing to do is stay in ABQ for several days to insure that you can see the lift off of the Balloons, but I doubt we'll do that. We are headed to Santa Fe for hiking and being outdoors, and I really don't want to give up so much time for the chance to see the lift off at day break. We are planning to find a place and sleep there every night.
So I am wondering what others think about getting to see this event. We are in Santa Fe form October 3-10, planning day trips to Taos and Bandolier for sure, and we could do ABQ as well, but will we be unimpressed if we don't see the sunrise liftoff? Is there anything else we should aim to see? Seems like a shame not do catch any of it since we're coming in from Boston!
Thanks.
