Opening day of FCU Balloon Fiesta Rally in ABQ

Opening day mass ascension balloon photos.
Click on pictures for a larger view.
The cathedral was the tallest balloon at over 100'.
It looks like the Astronaut balloon is chatting with the Killer Bees.
The last photo might be Mrs. Fuzz giving a cease and desist order to an unidentified FCU member.

Sights & sounds of the ABQ Balloon Fiesta

Short video of the sights & sounds of the ABQ Balloon Fiesta. The crowd, the roar of the propane burners and the whistles of the launch control "zebras".

GREAT pictures. Thanks so much for posting them. As we sit in rainy high winds Langley, BC, Canada right now and look at you folks in T-shirts and partying down this certainly gives us hope that there is life after this

Keep the pictures and commentary coming.

OK, so why no disclosure on who took top honors in the TTQ beauty pageant? It was difficult to judge from the photo who should prevail. Was there a talent show and swimsuit competition? Inquiring minds want to know.

And the winner is....

This was a very tough competition, so tough that the judges let the crowd vote on the winner. I now present the offical 4CU TTQ. Raise your head up high Mike, you are the winner...

It is very early morning in Albuquerque and it has been raining all night long, very hard at times. It is looking not so good for a lift off of balloons this morning. Things can change in a hurry, so we will keep our fingers crossed ans see what happens. We have a pancake breakfast planned for later this morning. With a little help from the weather folks, we might be able to pull this off...

Great photos everyone; my wife and I want to put this rally on our "must do" list for 2009. We are affiliate members of the NM4CU and have not met any of the folks as of yet.
