Default Albuquerque Balloon Festival

Decided to cancel my plans to go-once you start really looking into things you discover it's not all it's cracked up to be. First of all there are two sessions every day-each with it's own admission charge-the park is closed from noon until 3:30-so for my wife and I to go it would be $40.00/day just to get in. I guess parking is a nightmare-80/100,000 people per session-at my age I don't need that aggravation (you have to carry your own chairs-nowhere to sit) If the wind speed goes above 8 mph all balloon events are cancelled-no refunds on the dead ticket. I'm sure all the restaurants are crowded and expensive. When you add up all the costs it would be over $1000.00 for (3) days-think I can find something a lot better for that kind of $$.
