WATCH: Colorful Video of Hot Air Balloons Launching Into the Sky

There is something so oddly calming about this video.

This video, posted on Facebook by travel page Roadtrippers, features the Alburqueque International Balloon Fiesta, which is an annual event in Alburqueque, New Mexico, USA. It happens every fall, around October, and runs over nine days long and launching over 500 hot air balloons each year.

Quite impressive, yes? Plus, the sight is quite something behold. Just take a look:

America’s most whimsical balloon festival will enchant youI have to see this one of these days!

This should definitely be in your bucketlist! In the meantime though, here in the Philippines we have the International Hot Air Balloon Festival which happens February each year. And if you can’t go to New Mexico just yet, I promise you that our version in Clark, Pampanga is quite magical, too. 🙂

 Have you been to a hot air balloon festival before? How was the experience?
