Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Rally !

2012 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Rally is on! We will be camping beach front right on the grounds of the Balloon Fiesta. Since we are a large group, we get the best seats in the house. If you have never been before, this is a great opportunity to see this event close up - the balloons will be taking off yards from your front door. For more information log on to Welcome to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

This year is again special as it’s the 100th Anniversary of New Mexico statehood.

The dates are to arrive October 5th and leave the morning of Oct 9th. The cost is $341 which INCLUDES
FREE (which alone would cost almost $200 if you were not camping with us) entry to all events for 2 people. The only thing we charge is $1 to cover some bank charges for handling the rally funds - which means you would pay the same if you were to stay there on your own.

Don’t miss the early morning Dawn Patrol where a dozen balloons light up the pre-dawn sky. Next up is Mass Ascension where you will see hundreds of balloons take to the sky. The best part is that you are not sitting in grandstands taking in the action from a distance but you are right on the field watching as balloon crews set up their balloons and take off. The evening brings more balloons and fireworks!

We have approx 150 spots reserved – this is a BIG Airstream event, this is the ONLY Airstream event that is parked on the fiesta field. You cannot get any closer than we are. It is my understand that several have called the balloon folks have were told they are full – so we may have the only spots available.

This event fills up fast and I need to know who is attending by early April, and ½ of the fee ($170.50) is due at that time (The other half is due sometime in July). After that point I can’t promise a spot although the past we have been able to accept later reservations – it just depends on how they fill up. At this point we have a bunch of pre-registrations for those who have attended before, so don't wait.

A fresh water truck and pump out service is available, however there are no elec hookups. Generators are ok and solar works great.

This is the perfect family rally so bring the parents, grandparents, kids, pets and lets have a great time at this VERY popular and NOT TO MISS event! Don’t forget your camera!

Refund policy - the balloon fiesta folks have a strict policy of no refunds after September 1st. I also can’t promise full refunds up to that point – their policy is a $10 charge until July 15th and from July 15 – Aug 31st there is a 50% charge. We work well with the balloon fiesta folks and they have never charged us for refunds up to Sept 1st – after Sept 1st we know we can’t refund any money.

Attached is the sign up sheet – and please please write your e-mail clearly so I can read it because that’s how we will communicate with you and let you know whats going on prior to the fiesta – you will receive several updates as we get closer to Balloon Fiesta!

Ask anyone who has attended this great event before and they will tell you that you just cannot describe it – you just have to be there.

See you at Balloon Fiesta!

We've been waiting and checking daily for registration to open. Now I have to wait a few hours for the post office to open to mail in the registration. And we can't wait for the rally to start.
This looks to be a ton of fun.

Ken, we attended in 2010. Will the Airstream group parking be at the far north end of the VIP WEST parking area, like it was in 2010?

I went to the post office yesterday and boy do I have a stack of checks - have not had a chance to open them all - we are also doing a Restoration Rally in June so I know there are a lot of sign ups for that also........

Please be patient with me on confirming reservations - I'm out of town next week and work has me very busy......

We sent the check a couple of days ago. It was a lot of fun last year (our first) and we expect more of the same. 150 Airstreams? A small city with all the houses looking pretty much the same from a distance.

Hmmm I don't know why the attachement did not open for you Sharleen - I just tried it and it worked - anyway, let us know if you need anything else and we are very glad you are joining us - it will be great time.....

As I was thinking about this, its more than just the Balloon Fiesta - as we used to say back in the 60's - its a happening - all of us Airstream folks just really have a great time - and yes it is a small city as Gene says - and its really exciting to me to see how quick it comes together each year and said when everyone leaves when its over...........
