2013 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Schedule john mccormack realtor nm real estate albuquerque homes realty ballooon glow

 

We at Albuquerque Homes Realty are getting excited about the 2013 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta!  Debbie and I are planning getting up very early and heading out for one mass ascension and also planning on attending one balloon glow.  The other mornings we will be watching the silent hot air balloons float above our home in search of a good place to land. 

 

If you haven’t marked your calendar remember the 2013 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta runs from October 5th - October 13th.  This is one Albuquerque event you won’t want to miss.  Great fun for kids of all ages including me!

John - One of my favorite events to read about in Albuquerque, and it's on my bucket list to do some day - the Annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.  Excellent information to have for the upcoming event.  Loved the video!

John, this promises to be a great event.  600 balloons - WOW!  I have seen the bumble bees, Energizer bunny and eagle balloons before.  Love the video!

John: I have never seen an event like this in person and would have to go if in your area.  Have fun!

Hi John - Baloon time in Albuquerque! You guys put on an amazing show - wish I could be there for it this year.

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) about 4 years ago

This is such a cool event. I've seen some great photos (including the one's you shared last year)... Great video. Shoot lots of pictures and video!

Posted by Rene Fabre, New Media Marketing (First American Title) about 4 years ago

Good afternoon friends.  Indeed Debbie and I are planning on attending and shooting some descent video for YouTube to share.  The slide-show here was one of my first attempts at doing any type of slide-show / YouTube so hope you will forgive the lack of professionalism. 

If you decided to hop in your car or hop a plane and attend the 2013 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta be sure to let us know.... We'll leave the light on for you!

John, This brings back such fond memories of when we lived in New Mexico. These mass ascensions were such a phenomenal sight.  Enjoy, enjoy! Post lots of pics please. Thanks!

John, I can't wait to hear how much fun you and Debbie have and see all your new photos, don't shoot arrows at the RE/MAX balloon.....lol

Posted by Bob Ratliff, "Sold with Bob" (Renowned Realty ) about 4 years ago

Hi John,

I've been several times when visiting my parents in Rio Rancho..now that they are buried at the base of the Sandia Mt.s I'll bet they are stil enjoying the festival:).

I dream of getting out to your part of the country John. This is the time of year that I want to make the journey. That looks so very cool

Posted by Janis Borgueta, LIC RE Salesperson - Hudson Valley Homes for Sale (Key Properties of the Hudson Valley ) about 4 years ago

John, It was unfortunate that may day job business trips to the Q city NEVER brought me there during the balloon fiesta.  It's got to be pretty awesome!

Posted by Liz and Bill Spear, RE/MAX Elite Warren County OH (Cincinnati/Dayton) (RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 www.LizTour.com) about 4 years ago

Now THIS is the Q at it's finest.  I would have loved to come now but I probably could not get a hotel room!

Posted by Joanna Cohlan, Designing, Decorating & Staging Westchester Homes (Fresh Eyes For Your Home) about 4 years ago
Hi John, This event is on my bucket list. We have balloons in an area not far from here but this is the event to see. I hope you get lots of photos and that the weather will be perfect for this international famous event.
Posted by William Johnson, San Diego Real Estate Voice, GRI CRS e-Pro CDPE (RE/MAX Associates) about 4 years ago

I need to get down your way and check out some of this neat stuff you keep blogging about. I have an aunt and a friend down there. A road trip might be in my future.

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) about 4 years ago

John, I've seen so many amazing photos of the Fiesta from previous years. I'd love to attend someday but until then I'll have to enjoy it through your photos and videos. And I love the idea that Krispy Kreme sponsors the morning glow.

Posted by Nancy Laswick, Your REALTOR® For The Valley Of The Sun (United Real Estate) about 4 years ago

That looks like so much fun for you and Debbie.  We don't have those around here.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) about 4 years ago

Wow, that looks like so much fun Q Man, I'd love to attend.

I want to go.... I love the pictures!!! I was watching GMA and they said Albuquerque is going from 84 to 71 this weekend. you will be feeling fall like soon. Our nights have been hitting 40 but days it shoots up to 70-80 but as soon as the sun goes down, back to the freezer. Have a good day
