We will be at the Balloon Festival though not the AS Rally since we need hookups. We plan to wander over at some point and say hi...

Bring a warm jacket, a hat and gloves. It's chilly out there for the Dawn Launch.

Great tip, thank you! I was trying to pack smart for the kids and us, so a few fleece items will be packed.

We have had a number of folks sign up for that - it's a lot of fun and you may just get a ride in a balloon

Weather forecast is looking fabulous for next weekend and the week beyond - highs of 83 and lows of 54. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Cindy and I crewed each day, and had a wonderful time! Hang out at the pre-dawn pilot's briefing at the control tower - although there are commercial crews, many of them are mom and pop operations who depend on volunteers to launch and recover the balloons.

We are in the same boat as BambiTex. Camping in the hook-up section. Will be there for the last weekend of the Festival. Hope to get to say hello.

Just so you know that is quite a ways from the field and it's a bit of a sand pit

Thank you to Region 11 and Four Corners a Unit for once again hosting a marvelous Balloon Fiesta Rally. We ran into old friends and met fellow Airstreamers from across the country. And the accommodations, of course, can't be beat.

Don't have to be with a WBCCI group to have a great time at the Fiesta, or with other Airstreamers!
