My mom used to liken the experience of walking the balloon launch field during Albuquerque’s annual Balloon Fiesta to wandering among brightly colored elephants. Watching a launch is an unforgettable experience.
But we all know what goes up must come down. And even if balloons floated forever, your neck would never hold out. In the down time, raise your spirits with a visit to Old Town, another unique Albuquerque experience. While here, come to Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery, right on the Plaza.
Amapola Gallery is all New Mexican all the time, 40 local artists strong, and filled with memorable art and fine crafts, from unique souvenirs NOT made in China to superb collectibles.
While the balloons are down come to Old Town and look us up! Amapola Gallery, 205 Romero N.W. Open daily 10 to 5.
