Every year during the middle of October, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is held.
This is an annual festival celebrating hot air balloons.
It is a week-long event that occurs in the beginning of October. When the festival began, there were only a dozen different hot air balloons. Last year, there were more than 600 different balloons. The balloon fiesta is easily one of the largest tourist attractions in Albuquerque. It is a huge source of income for all businesses in the Albuquerque city area. My family and I decided to move to Albuquerque a couple of months ago. We were already living in New Mexico, but Albuquerque seemed like a good move. One big reason why Albuquerque looked good is due to the fact that it has a lot of cannabis dispensaries. My wife and I both use cannabis products. They are legal for recreational and medical purposes in the state of New Mexico. Albuquerque has more than 40 different cannabis stores within city limits. Before my wife and I went to the balloon fiesta this year, the two of us stopped at one of these cannabis shops to pick up some supplies. We spent all day at the balloon festival and we even took a ride in a balloon. It was a little pricey, but my wife and I will never have an opportunity to do that again. It was the most amazing adventure and I was scared to look down. When I finally did, it was an incredible view. People, trees, and cars look like ants from thousands of feet in the air.
