Hundreds of hot air balloons take to the skies : Video

Hundreds of hot-air balloons take to the skies each year in early October for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the largest event of its kind in the world.

In this time-lapse, filmmaker Joel Schat captures highlights from the nine-day event, from the illuminating glow of the balloons before dawn to festivities after the sun has set.

The video was originally published by Roadtrippers, a multimedia platform inspiring adventurers to plan road trips to destinations and events like this one.

It is one of our favourites, we hope you enjoy it too!
