Twilight Twinkle Glow™ / Balloon Glow / Night Magic Glow™
The events now known as balloon glows were invented in Albuquerque in 1979, when local pilots inflated balloons on Christmas Eve night as a thank you to local residents. The sight of balloons lit from within at night like giant holiday ornaments is breathtaking, and glow events are now held all over the world. Balloon Fiesta launched its Balloon Glow, the world's biggest, in 1987. Fiesta Glow all burns when all the balloons fire their burners and light up at the same time are perhaps the most spectacular single moment in all of Balloon Fiesta. The Balloon Glows followed by New Mexico's most spectacular fireworks displays - are now among Balloon Fiesta's most popular events.
NOTE: There are no refunds for ABQ Trolley Rise/Glow tickets. ABQ Trolley X travels to Balloon Fiesta park regardless of weather conditions. The Balloon Fiesta does not typically cancel events until just before they are scheduled to take place. If the Mass Ascension/Glow is cancelled due to weather, there is still entertainment and fireworks at the park (Glow only). Also, due to the high demand for these tickets, there will not be any refunds for anyone who misses the Trolley Rise/Glow. By the time the tours are upon us, we've turned down many riders who are interested in joining us because the tours are "sold out." Having a rider cancel the week of or the day of does not give us enough time to resell that ticket. Thank you for your understanding.
