Balloons and Tunes
Eagle Draw / Derrick Floor
Artesia, NM United States 88210
First weekend in November
Number of balloons: 30
Year began: 1997
Join us the first weekend in November each year as hot air balloons fill the crisp autumn air. Balloons launch Saturday and Sunday morning, weather permitting. Donít be shy, pilots love to talk about their hobby and you could even get a chance to help inflate the hot air balloon yourself! After the morning flights, take a stroll through our Historic Walking Tour and History In Bronze, or simply shop the unique downtown merchants found on Main Street. Tap your toes to the tunes of the Artesia High School Band playing alongside balloon pilots during Saturday nightís Fire Concert, or take in a musical performance downtown during the weekend.
Balloons lift off Saturday and Sunday from Eagle Draw 2 blocks north of Main St. Bluegrass festival will be held at the Derrick Floor in downtown Artesia.
