Albuquerque Balloon Festival 2018
« on: February 06, 2018, 07:58:23 PM »
We are newbies and won't hit the road until this fall but wondered if anyone has an idea for where we could park our 37' fifth wheel during the festival in Albuquerque. All the sites appear to be booked.  Any ideas?

We went to the fiesta last year. We went with Winnebago Outdoor Adventures.   They provided 30 amp electric and a water truck and  sewage pump out twice during the week. Also a tent where we met, sometimes to eat and presentations and entertainment.  We had a  meal every day and a couple of tours. You don't have to own a Winnebago, but WIT  club members get a 10% discount. You should contact Winnebago Outdoor Adventures now, they probably have available spots now because they reserve a block of sites and manage it themselves.

There are dry camp sites and some VIP site left in their facility

The difference in cost was negligible so we opted for the complete package to be sure weather wouldn’t be a problem. Breakfast and dinner everyday, if not everyday then most days.
