36th Annual Taos Mountain Balloon Rally

Posted

The 36th annual Taos Mountain Balloon Rally is in the history books now, but while it was happening, fun was had, lots and lots of it. Starting Friday (Oct. 26), a mini-ascension brought out a handful of balloonists, some of whom inflated their envelopes for school children to experience a tethered ride.

Then, Saturday (Oct. 27), there was a mass ascension, followed by a Halloween-themed Balloon Parade along Paseo del Pueblo Norte y Sur, and capped off by a spectacular "Balloomenshine" glow event that drew hundreds of spectators. The event wrapped up, still in colorful fashion, with one more mass ascension before closing ceremonies.

All of this couldn't happen without the hard work of the Taos Mountain Balloon Rally board, staff and volunteers.
