Riassunto: The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is the premiere ballooning event in the world. It all started with one balloon that no one ever intended to fly bought as a party decoration for a corporate celebration in an airplane hangar. But that one balloon did fly, and became two . . . then thirteen . . . then hundreds . . . and in 2000, more than 1,000! The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta® changed Albuquerque forever. Today, it is the world crossroads of ballooning and the most photographed event.

Hundreds of stunning color photographs of Balloon Fiestas past and present! From Albuquerque's very first balloon flight in 1882! to the present day, The World Comes to Albuquerque: The Dream Takes Flight is the next best thing to being there!
