2019 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

October 4-14, 2019

Come and join FROG for autumn in the Rockies in beautiful Durango, Colorado. You'll share in the fun of the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, including attending a Cowboy Humor Performance; ride the rails on the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad; and share in great food and great fun with fellow FROGs.

On your own, you might want to explore the ancient cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde National Park; stand in four states at Four Corners; or just relax in the spectacular setting as the aspens drape the mountains in their brilliant cold color.

From there we're off to New Mexico for the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta! We'll be in the hookup section (30 amp electric and water) of the Balloon Fiesta Park with free shuttles to the Launch Field available. WEATHER PERMITTING, there are four mass ascensions, three balloon glows and fireworks shows, and other entertainment scheduled during our stay. We'll include tickets two two of the sessions for each person in your RV, with additional tickets available at the gate.

On Friday we'll take a bus tour to Acoma Pueblo ("Sky City"), an ancient community situated atop a large mesa and continuously inhabited since the 12th century. On the way back to Albuquerque we'll enjoy a buffet lunch. On Sunday, we'll ride the aerial tram to the top of Sandia Peak to enjoy the expansive views of Albuquerque and the surrounding area, and enjoy lunch atop the peak. From there we're off to Old Town Albuquerque to tour the original Plaza and the surrounding area.

REGISTRATION OPENS ON SATURDAY, JUNE 29 AT NOON EASTERN TIME. You'll want to move fast -- last year the trip filled in under two minutes.

Hope to see you there!

We've not yet determined whether this will be a stand-alone event, or if it will be tied to other locations as was done for 2018.

Registration is not yet open, and will be announced well in advance, but we wanted to give everyone a "heads up."
