Living in Albuquerque- Balloon Festival Event


On March 7, the Albuquerque Balloon Museum will host one of its best exhibits - The Open House Sky Sailing.

Visitors will thrill to hang gliding and paragliding demonstrations, including an acrobatic paragliding act by the Ozone Team, as well as 12 ft walking puppets, remote controlled flight demonstrations, and model gliders.

The Museum's open house will feature an Olympus 180 hang glider and a giant sailplane with wingspans of 50 ft. These aircraft will be hanging in the Museum Gallery.

The concept of wind flight will be explored, from the aircraft to nature's own wind machines - birds, squirrels...and even amphibians.

This is a great free exhibition that the whole family will enjoy. Come and learn about Albuquerque's special wind currents, and then drive around afterwards and check out what Albuquerque real estate has to offer these days!

The exhibition is on March 7, 2010, from 11-3pm.
