Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta – Albuquerque, New Mexico:

A carnival celebrating hot air balloons may sound like a kid’s fantasy, but during October each year, this fantasy becomes real in New Mexico. Held October 5 through October 13 this year, the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is largest and most-photographed ballooning event in the world where over 600 hot air balloons are launched into the sky together. Whether you’re 8 or 80 – this is one childhood dream to fulfill.
