It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year- in Albuquerque!
Every October, Albuquerque hosts the largest hot air balloon fiesta in the world. Hundreds of balloons grace the sky, like bursts of color scattered on a canvas of blue. It’s a beautiful sight and one of our favorite fall traditions!
Celebrate our most colorful and uplifting weekend of the year in true New Mexico style. Bright and bold gemstone designs from American West Jewelry will elevate your altitude and make your spirits soar! Bold and bright gemstone colors of lapis, coral and malachite beautifully reflect the giant balloons that rise through Sleepy Beauty Turquoise blue skies. Authentic, nature-inspired earthtone gems from American West complete this Southwest splendor by bringing the majesty of the landscape to life.
While you’re in town for Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta come visit the Carolyn Pollack Jewelry Outlet for our Balloon Fiesta blowout sale! Saturday, October 1 through Sunday, October 9.
Speaking of celebrating, a favorite ballooning tradition is the ceremony the pilot performs after the flight for his passengers. The Balloonist’s Prayer is recited, followed by a champagne toast!
The winds have welcomed you with softness.
The sun has blessed you with its warm hands.
You have flown so high and so well
that God has joined you in your laughter
and set you gently back again
into the loving arms of Mother Earth.
