Happy New Year 2020 from New Mexico

As promised last time, here are the "shaped" balloons from the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque.

There are so many of these that a special day just to show them off is part of the fiesta. I was not at that day and all of these are just from the general ascension that I was able to attend. As you will see they are quite remarkable.

This guy seems most appropriate to begin the parade of shapes, the rest will be in no particular order.

To get a feel for how big these things are, note the baskets beneath each one and keep in mind that each basket holds all the equipment to inflate and guide the balloon and a crew of at least a couple of people!

Quite a few are commercial.

This one is a Kiwi from New Zealand.

These two are always together and they both landed in my friends yard this year.

  Just love this one.

This guy is huge, wish I new his story!

So, these are just a few of these remarkable entries.

I hope you enjoy them and that they bring a smile for the New Year.

Next time, on the 7th, we will return to visiting Vietnam memorials and will revisit New York, so, join me there as always, at 9:00am.
