As an air-travel propellant, hot air is both cheaper than jet fuel and safer than mixing Diet Coke with Mentos. Revel in the superior way to fly with today's deal: for $99, you get two tickets plus one evening-session parking pass to the Albuquerque Balloon Museum Foundation's exclusive CHIC-I-BOOM Ball, which takes place on October 9 at the Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum (a $200 total value).
In its second year, the CHIC-I-BOOM Ball entertains gravity-bound aeronauts with a host of live entertainment, prizes, and hot-air balloon-based merriment. Don your finest island-casual attire for this year's "An Evening in Rio" theme and samba through the museum for evening-long Brazilian music, food, and festive touches. Feel free to peruse the silent auction or take a free guided tour of the Balloon Museum, which hosts an array of historic artifacts and record-setting balloon gondolas. All the while, guests are free to feast their orbs on the sights of the Balloon Glow and a fireworks display at the Balloon Fiesta events, which you can enjoy from the heated Balloon Museum terrace's panoramic balcony view. Those looking to get closer to the action can hop into the museum's complimentary shuttle for transportation to and from the glowing field itself (admission to the Balloon Glow costs an additional $6, not included in today's deal).
Join the Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum Foundation to celebrate Albuquerque's rich ballooning heritage and the sport itself. All donations, memberships, and auction purchases help support the museum and its mission.
Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum
Ever since 1873, when human beings first broke free of gravity's bonds without the help of passing falcons, balloons have been used for everything from scientific discovery to recreation. At the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum, visitors learn about world-record parachute jumps, notable female aeronauts, the tragic and triumphant history of the craft, and the use of balloons in wars ranging from the Civil War to World War II.
