Timelapse: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta
Albuquerque, New Mexico held its 42nd annual International Balloon Fiesta. It's a 9-day event where over 700 balloons see liftoff. It's the largest hot air balloon festival in the entire world.
The Alarm goes off at 4 am. The best pilots go up before the sunrise to find out what the wind conditions will be like for the day.
Dawn Ascension is when all of the balloons (excluding dawn patrol) take off one after another starting just before the sunrise. 500+ balloons take off in the span of an hour and a half. The balloons land anywhere they can in Albuquerque. From school yards, to back yards to the middle of the street, the whole community unites to pull the balloons from the sky and celebrate those rides of a lifetime.
