Once a year, the Animas Valley fills with the vibrant colors of nearly a dozen hot air balloons. At a time when fall colors are at their peak, the Animas Valley Balloon Rally brings new reason to celebrate the season. Attendees will enjoy mass balloon ascension events each morning, as well as downtown balloon glows every night!

The event will kick off with a Media Flight at 8am, the 18th and conclude with a mass ascension at 8am, the 20th. The Mass Ascension and Valley Glow events, where visitors can enjoy balloon views from the colorful Animas Valley, take place from the Hermosa Meadows Road. Visitors can also view hot air balloons lighting up the sky from historic Main Avenue in the evenings.

Whether you’re a photographer, artist, visiting with your family, or looking for a unique way to see Durango’s prettiest sights, the Animas Valley Balloon Rally is a must-witness event!
