Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta


2019 Fulltime Families Balloon Experience 

October 1-6, 2019 in sunny Albuquerque, New Mexico

Plan now to attend the world’s largest balloon festival! In early October, the Albuquerque skies are filled with color as more than 500 balloons lift off from Balloon Fiesta Park. Attend the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and be part of an amazing hot air balloon experience. Walk among the moving picture show of hot air balloons lifting gently through the crisp, fall air. It’ll feel like you’re in a dream.


Fulltime Families is excited to announce the 2019 Balloon Experience.  Get ready to be amazed if this is your first Balloon Fiesta.  We will arrive the week before the fiesta begins to get to know other families, have fun, participate in crew training, get up close and personal with the balloons, learn from the experts in their field- The Pilots. This is an experience not to miss!  The schedule includes a variety of family games, arts and crafts, potlucks, and Hot Air Balloons!

The Fulltime Families Balloon Experience Rally will occur October 1- October 6, 2019, which is Tuesday through Sunday.  Families will check-in on Monday, Sept 30, which is the first possible day to arrive at the Balloon Fiesta campground, and check-out any day after Sunday, Oct 6.  (Stay as long as you desire.)

This is be a week-long event with 1/2 price camping rates from Monday-Thursday. Most activities will happen Tuesday through Friday before the Balloon Fiesta starts on Saturday.  Leading up to the Balloon Fiesta, we will have fun, meet other families, learn about Balloons and prepare for an incredible experience.    Two entrance tickets per adult to the Balloon Fiesta are included(kids are free), so we can all attend the Fiesta on Saturday and Sunday as weather allows.

The Rally will occur on the Balloon Fiesta Campground Standard lot.  This is a boondocking lot, within walking distance to the Balloon Field.  When you book your site with the Balloon Fiesta, be certain to indicate “Fulltime Families”.  All Fulltime Families arriving Monday will be placed together, in a gated camping area, within close access to a dumpster, portable toilet, and Shuttle stop.  By arriving Monday, we participate in 1/2 price price camping rates from Monday-Thursday, then you pay full price rates Friday through the remainder of your stay.   By arriving Monday, there is very little delay parking on-site, and it is a stress-free parking experience.  Arrive late, and all bets are off!  You are welcome to stay as long as you desire. Your additional days will need to be booked directly with Fiesta at this time.   A few families will leave on Sunday, some will leave on Monday, and some will stay the entire 2 weeks of the Balloon Fiesta.

Are you afraid to Boondock?  Don’t fret!  We all help each other.  A pumper truck will visit your site and pump your tanks for $30.  A water truck will fill your tank for an additional fee.  However, a fellow Fulltime Family will probably help with either for a handshake and a smile!
