Mineral Area College Continuing Education will lead a community travel group to

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta + 6 National Parks in October 2021

The community is invited to travel with us October 1 – 12, 2021 to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, the world's most prestigious international ballooning event with over 500 balloons! There are tons of activities and special events going on throughout the 8 day event, but I’ve been told the first weekend is the best—so that is how we’ve scheduled it. After a full day at the festival, from the mass ascension of hundreds of balloons to the afterglow, we’ll head out on our national park tour.

We’ll stop at Durango, Colorado on our way to Mesa Verde where we’ll get a glimpse into life in an Old West frontier town. At Mesa Verde, we explore the cliff dwellings. On the way to the next stop, we pass Monument Valley’s Mexican Hat.  We’ll see the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park before hitting up the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. It’s a packed 12-day tour that will surely be one of the most memorable trips of your life! 

This tour is officially full, but we are told that there will likely be travelers who cancel. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, call our travel partner, Go Ahead Tours, with a fully-refundable $450 deposit for your chance to join us on this exciting tour!
