"I high-fived one of the pilots! It was awesome!!!" Jane Bales (48), Rio Rancho, NM

“The Balloon Fiesta Kayak Tour was undoubtedly the most surreal kayaking experience I've ever had!  All these massive orbs of bright colors descending around us and blasting the early morning river silence with their roaring burners.  Unbelievable!”  Rem Smith (57), Albuquerque, NM

"With very little kayaking experience, I nervously but eagerly
joined Kelly Gossett and a group of kaykers on an early morning excursion down the Rio Grande during the balloon fiesta. It was an amazing experience and with Kelly's patience, clear direction, and
encouragement I had a brilliant outdoor adventure. I met some really great people along on the trip and I look forward to repeating the adventure this fall. Thank you Kelly for such a memorable experience."
Genieve Sanchez (29), Albuquerque, NM
