Balloon Fiesta in ABQ

Jump to last reply

Thinking of staying overnight in Albuquerque to be able to watch the Wednesday morning launch, but then need to head to the airport. Does it make sense to stay downtown, so we can leave our car at thehotel to go see the launch, or should we stay outside of the city so we can easily get out to the airport that morning? I expect it will be crowded, but are the roads very congested during mid morning that week? We are thinking of coming from Santa Fe on Tuesday night and our flight out is Wednesday am around 10:30. No idea how much time we need to give ourselves to get to the airport. Any guidance from folks who have experienced the Balloon Fiesta would be appreciated. We're also considering the Sunday late afternoon event, but not sure if it's crazy to try to come in for that.
Thanks.
