ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Balloon Fiesta mass ascension lifted off to ideal conditions Saturday morning as light winds pushed balloons north of the field.

According to the Albuquerque Police Department and Balloon Fiesta officials due to the large turnout, all Balloon Fiesta parking lots were full and traffic also was at a standstill most of the morning.
