Red, White & Balloons Museum Event -

Head to Albuquerque for Independence Day when the Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum Foundation hosts the Red, White, and Balloons 4th of July celebration from 5 to 10 p.m. on the Balloon Museum lawn. This family-friendly event offers outstanding views of the Freedom 4th fireworks display from the museum grounds. Before the fireworks start, you and the family can enjoy fun lawn activities.

The celebration will feature live summer music by Entourage Jazz and DJ Malik on the lawn, followed by a balloon glow (weather permitting). The Freedom 4th Fireworks will kick off around 9 p.m., offering attendees a fantastic view from the Balloon Museum. Additionally, a summer marketplace will showcase local artisans and products, including festive light-up items available for purchase at the Balloon Museum Shoppe to mark the 4th of July.

You can bring your own food for a picnic on the lawn or purchase meals from the available food trucks. If you buy lawn tickets, you can bring your own chairs and picnic blankets or even reserve a cabana tent or table through the museum.
