Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

This weekend we kicked off Texas on Tour’s final stop for the year at the International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico. With hundreds of hot air balloons set against colorful sunrise and sunset backdrops, it is clear why visitors far and wide venture to New Mexico for this amazing tradition. As an international event, we welcomed visitors to Texas on Tour from all over the world including Brazil, Canada, France and Sweden!

We were thrilled to welcome lots of neighbors, state neighbors that is, to the Texas on Tour exhibit. Since the Lone Star State is so close to New Mexico, many visitors were curious and looking for advice about planning their next Texas getaway. Luckily, they will receive the 2012 Texas Travel Guide they requested while at Texas on Tour in the mail shortly, which highlights all of the wonderful things to do, places to go and historic sites to visit in Texas. It has all the tips and info you could ever want on Texas destinations and attractions. Anyone can grab their own Texas Travel Guide at
Our journey has taken us almost 10,000 miles as we visited 11 different cities throughout the U.S. this year. We're both proud and sad to see our tour come to a close in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Come see the sites at the Balloon Fiesta and spend some time with Texas on Tour before we wrap up for the year on Sunday, October 14th!
