DBSA Albuquerque will be going to the evening Night Magic Glow and Afterglow Fireworks event at the 2011 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta on Saturday, October 8, 2011.
DBSA will be funding admission to the event. Transportation to the event and/or parking is not covered.
Because DBSA members will be coming from numerous places around the Albuquerque metropolitan area, we will meet inside the Balloon Fiesta Park at 4:30 pm. It is recommended by the Fiesta organizers to plan on being at the park by 4:00 pm to allow for parking traffic or lines at Park & Ride locations.
Individuals will pay for their own admission at the park (or through online presale or Park & Ride location). Hold on to your ticket stub, for this will allow DBSA to reimburse you for the price of admission.
