Every Fall near the Sandia Mountains of New Mexico, balloon enthusiasts gather from all over the world to witness something spectacular. Rising high into the air and then making their way back to their launch site (with help from the box winds), these balloonists compete in various contests of skill and navigation. Be a part of the fun and see who happens to be piloting the balloons in this brightly-colored painting.

Love the picture

I lived in Albuquerque for 11 years and enjoyed the sites at the balloon fiesta. I’m anxious to get this puzzle to work on.

Challenging Goodness

This is one of the more challenging puzzles. I never look at the box or picture inside so that made it even more difficult, and that is just what I like. Definitely a puzzle for the more seasoned puzzler.

puzzle coloring - 1000 piece Balloon Festival

This was a very challenging puzzle. I like to use the picture chart included to help work on puzzles with many colors as this one. The problem is that the chart coloring was off from the actual puzzle pieces i.e. pieces that looked blue on the chart were actually purple. This made it difficult when trying to sort the colored pieces of the balloons. After a great deal of frustration, it was completed

Balloon Festival Challenge

This is the fourth puzzle from Dowdle that I have completed. The best part of these puzzles are the unique shapes of the pieces which are intriguing. So much better that the traditional pieces. The colors are beautiful and the pieces are sturdy. One of the puzzles that I did was missing a piece and I know that my cat did not drag it away. I should have contacted the company but never did. This particular puzzle had an extra piece so I hope someone out there is not missing one. Looking forward to adding to my collection.

Challenging but Worth It

I live in Albuquerque so this puzzle is very special to me. For me, it was challenging! I did the 1,000 piece version, and as another reviewer said, some of the colors look like they could be used in different parts of the puzzle. While it was tricky and took awhile to complete, I can’t wait to frame it.
