ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (CNN) -- The skies over Albuquerque have been awash in color this week. Almost 900 hot air balloons are in town to take part in the 28th annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta which ends Sunday.
Events include several dramatic, early morning mass ascensions, a dusk 'Balloon Glow,' a long-distance balloon race, kite building classes and more.
