During the 2020 Balloon Fiesta Siesta, I’m posting a few good photos each day from 2019. One of the coolest things to see at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is the mass ascension each morning. It’s just stunning to see upwards of 600 hot air balloons, taking off one after another.
This video shows a quick summary of our time at the Balloon Fiesta, with some mass ascension footage, especially at the 2:15 mark.
As you can tell, there are still plenty of hot air balloons in the background waiting for launch. It’s a constant steady stream.
