    The first weekend of December brings color and excitement to the red sandstone bluffs and canyons of Gallup, New Mexico as 200 balloons from around the world descend upon this spectacular setting. Balloons of all shape and colors drift through beautiful canyons and over formations carved by wind and rain thousands of years ago. Spectators of all ages will enjoy the incredible sights and soon understand why this is a balloonist’s paradise.

    The Red Rock Balloon Rally, New Mexico’s PremierBallooning event, has been held annually, the first full weekend in December since 1981. It is the second largest balloon event in the United States. Spectators can get up close to the balloons and even volunteer to crew. There is no admission charge and only a small parking fee.
