Many moons ago, the now defunct pre-1968 VW Bus club “The Route 66 Splits” started camping in a field during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. This event became Buses and Balloons. Over the many years since then the city grew, and the field with a once decent view of the rio grande valley became a church parking lot in a neighborhood. Anyone who has been to Buses and Balloons recently knows that the location, while close to a Wendy’s and an autozone, has left something to be desired.
For a long time we’ve been looking for a rad location close to the balloon fiesta. This year we’ve finally found it!
So what’s the big deal?
