Balloon Fiesta, Fiesta of wheels
For nine days in October, the New Mexico skies are painted as hundreds of balloons lift off from Albuquerque's Balloon Fiesta Park. Whimsical special shapes and Balloon Glows create a magical landscape for spectators to wander. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta will leave you awestruck and wanting more.

The first Sunday of the event is special for automotive hobbies. The Rainbow Roadrunners Car Club will host a car display on the field after the balloons lift off. Hundreds of classic, vintage and special interest vehicles will parade from the West onto the field. Vehicles are from all over the state and country. All vehicles that fit into the categories will be accepted.  It is not necessary to register for this free event, however if large clubs are planning on attending together please contact the event coordinator. Ribbons or dash plaques will be given out to the first 200 vehicles that line up. 

Please line up at the Los Ranchos Journal Center Station Rail Runner Station 101 El Pueblo NE, corner of Edith and El Pueblo at 7:30 AM.  
Officials will call us when the field is open and ready for us, this might mean we stay at the staging area until approximately  9AM. This is uncontrollable due to the safety of the Balloon Fiesta and the road access. In addition please obey all traffic laws and give right-of-way to the busses.

The 15th annual Fiesta Of Wheels is fast approaching. Line up area just like last year.
