BALLOON GLOW -- So what is a balloon glow?
The hot air balloon festival event now known as a balloon glow was invented in Albuquerque in 1979, when local pilots inflated balloons on Christmas Eve night as a thank you to local residents. The sight of balloons lit from within at night like giant holiday ornaments is breathtaking, and glow events are now held all over the world.

TETHERED BALLOON RIDES. A hot air balloon, tethered to the ground, will offer rides ($20 adults and $10 children under 12) up to 60 feet in the air. No advanced booking is required. Cash payment to be made at time of ride
