Rio Rancho Observer Online : Balloon fiesta gets underway

Rio Rancho Observer Online: "ALBUQUERQUE - October in New Mexico is a delight to all the senses.

Leaves are turning autumnal colors, the smell of roasted green chile is wafting in the air, and hundreds of hot air balloons will soon fill the early morning sky at Balloon Fiesta Park.

Thousands of visitors from around the world have been coming to Albuquerque for 33 years to celebrate earth and sky at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta (Watch Video).

This year's theme, 'Freedom in the Air,' captures the magic of adventure and the pioneer spirit of balloon pilots. Balloonists representing one-third of the world's countries will launch their magnificent flying machines to float gently over the beautiful New Mexico landscape, taking in the charm and grace of the view below, and rejoice in the oldest and most elegant form of flight.

The annual event runs through Sunday, Oct. 10."
