The Albuquerque, New Mexico, Balloon Fiesta is the family equivalent of Burning Man. But the weirdness equivalent is high, as balloon designers are grabbing the hottest pop icons and making them into balloons.
To take part in the Balloon Fiesta, just load up the kiddies, drag them to the middle of the desert and stand around while thousands of propane tanks belch flames and hot air into balloons that are not available to take home.
