  2. Balloon Fiesta HOP - It's not too late to sign up! Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta There are a few sites left. For more information and pricing, click: https://www.escapees.com/skp_files/hop/event.php?id=38 October 6 – October 11, 2017 October 11 – October 15, 2017 October 6 - October 15, 2017 If this world premiere event is on your bucket list, then join SKP friends for the 46th annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Each morning as dawn breaks over the majestic Sandia Mountains, the skies will be filled with 600 palatial, bright and beautiful hot-air balloons from all over the world. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is the largest and most photographed hot-air balloon festival in the world. It is also the only location where “the box effect” comes into play. This is a special wind pattern that helps pilots navigate their balloons in a vertical, rectangular path, allowing them to land back onto the launch field or even right next to the RV. The Dawn Patrol lifts off first in the dark, with specially fitted lights, to observe weather conditions at different altitudes, such as the wind speed and its direction. Upon approval, the balloons lift off in a mass ascension. The “Zebras,” dressed in black and white, coordinate the launching of the balloons. One of the most exciting events is the Flight of the Nations Mass Ascension, where balloonists from each nation launch while waving their national flag. Even though there are always traditional shape balloons, there will be many special shapes, too. The most popular are the cow, sun, pig, stagecoach, clock, skunk, the Lady bug and the sweetest mother, daddy and baby bumblebees. The bumblebees have hands with Velcro, so when they touch in midair, it appears they are holding hands. When visiting any of the balloon pilots, remember to ask them for a trading card, which gives pertinent information about their balloon. This fiesta also hosts the Gas Balloons - America's Challenge race, with the winner being the one going the farthest. Some of the gas balloons have gone as far as the East Coast and into Canada. Their progress can be tracked on the Fiesta website. On the launch field, at dusk, you can see the burners of the balloons ignite and watch the evening sky fill with a bouquet of bright colors. The nights will finish with an extraordinary display of fireworks. Escapees will have Boondock camping and a private tent for inclement weather, socials, games and catered dinners. There will be a considerable amount of walking, so please bring comfortable walking shoes, binoculars and also a camera for taking photos of the beautiful balloons hovering overhead. Three options will be offered for the Balloon Fiesta HOP. You may purchase option #1: the first five days, (arriving October 6, leaving the morning of October 11) which will include the traditional shape balloons, a special presentation by an experienced hot-air balloon pilot and two entrance tickets, per person, into the balloon launch field, plus the activities below.
