“A Magical Land Called Balloon Fiesta”

Reviewed Feb 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We ended our time at Fiesta by moving over to this lot to be with a (small) group of friends who wanted to be closer to the actual launch field than the South Lot provides.

If you want to park near a friend, make sure to arrive with them.

This lot is just as sardined as the South lot, but is physically much closer to the launch area - less than 1/4mile walk. Which also means you're closer to breakfast burritos.

It's another gravel lot, without the option for hook-ups. You'll be very close to your neighbor. Generators will run. Dust will rise.

But, you're not here for camping. Or glamping. You're hear for balloons. And if you stay at one of the Fiesta's lots, you will get balloons.

They will fly over your head. They will tempt you to climb atop your roof with your lawn chair even if you're 55+ years old (ahem, Bob). When you're too lazy to make the 5am walk (now only 1/4 mile) to the Field, you will sit in the warmth of your rig and drink coffee as you view balloons flying overhead out your windshield.

If you're doing Fiesta, and you have a rig, book a spot at one of the official Fiesta lots. You won't have to fight 5am traffic. And you might even coax a balloon to land next to your rig.
