Le Reveillon A reproduction of the Montgolfier brothers' balloon. The original was the first manned balloon ever flown, in 1783 from Paris in France. I believe I saw this balloon, or a similar one, at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in October
The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is a yearly festival of hot air balloons that takes place in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA during early October. The event is the largest hot air balloon festival in the world.
