Balloons Over Angel Fire 2018 is on Father’s Day weekend. A great get-away for the family to give Dad a special weekend. This year 40+ hot-air balloons will fly over Angel Fire throughout the weekend with a special Balloon Glow on Saturday evening.

The Village of Angel Fire, with Presenting Sponsors Angel Fire Resort, Northern New Mexico Gas Company and Resort Properties of Angel Fire, along with Mountain Sports hosting the Saturday Balloon Ascension, will provide three days of hot-air ballooning up close and personal for everyone who attends.

Want to be part of a chase crew? Mass Balloon Ascensions are scheduled daily and a special Balloon Glow is scheduled for Saturday night. Balloon pilots are always looking for additional help in inflating, chasing and deflating the balloon each day. You can become a part of Balloons Over Angel Fire by being at the launch field any or all of the mornings of Mass Balloon Ascensions no later than 6:30am and volunteer to assist a pilot with their balloon. In return, most pilots will also offer you a ride for your help! This is a great way to find out more about the sport of hot-air ballooning and have a fun experience.
