This year's Fiesta of Wheels helps celebrate Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta's 50th anniversary, and we anticipate the excitement and participation from the event to share in the Fiesta of Wheels.

About the Fiesta of Wheels.
Staging for this year's event will be at the Rail Runner station at Los Ranchos/ Journal Center at 8:00 AM, MDT, October 2, 2022. Full staging details are available here.
Do not block traffic;
Obey all traffic laws;
Give right of way to busses, trains, and local traffic.
Restrooms are not available at the staging location. Officials will alert us when the field is open and ready for us. Although we anticipate this to be around 9:00 AM, the time is based on multiple factors and is ultimately out of our control.
Drive to Balloon Fiesta park
As the field opens and we are given clearance to enter the field, we will collectively head toward the crew entrance. For security, vehicles entering park will be subject to search. While we make every effort to remain in one group, local traffic can cause breaks in the migration to Balloon Fiesta park. If you are separated form the group, please continue towards the crew-members entrance gate to rejoin the group. As we enter the park, you will be directed to parking areas. Please follow traffic and instructions by all Balloon Fiesta personnel.
Most importantly, Have fun!
