Opening Night (Saturday Evening)
Join us for a casual wood-fired pizza and southwestern buffet on the grounds of the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. Troy Bradley, world record co-holder for Trans-Pacific helium-filled balloon flight, will share his experiences with us. With a little bravery, and maybe some liquid courage, hop into a hot air balloon basket and enjoy a controlled tethered float into the air.
Jewelry Making (Sunday Morning)
Try your skill at crafting a copper bracelet with Michael Nez, a Navajo Indian and jewelry maker. He’ll share not only his knowledge of crafting jewelry, but also explain some of the traditional symbolism captured in his pieces.
Wine and Watercolors (Sunday Afternoon)
Laugh, learn, and relax with a glass of fine local wine creating a watercolor you can call your own. Class instructors encourage the use of personal feelings and creativity within a truly inspirational setting. Can't paint? Don’t worry, the wine will help.

The Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway is the longest aerial tram in the United States and stretches from the northeast edge of the city to the crestline of the Sandia Mountains. Boasting the world's third longest single span the Tramway transports you above deep canyons and breathtaking terrain over a distance of 2.7 miles. See some of dramatic vistas and beauty unfold before you.
Welcome Dinner (Sunday Evening)

Monday Breakfast Speaker – Judith Schiess Avila
"Code Talker" was the only memoir of one of the original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII, Chester Nez. This was a fascinating history book, told in first person by Chester to author Judith Schiess Avila. After growing up in New York and New Hampshire, Judy made New Mexico, with its wonderful diversity of cultures, her home. She worked as a social worker, an artist, an air traffic controller, and a computer consultant before finally discovering writing. Hear Judy talk about her experience writing this book with Chester and how it affected her both personally and professionally.
