Just one hour south of Overland’s Santa Fe store, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the world’s largest ballooning event is running from October 2-10 — don’t miss it!

Spectators and balloon enthusiasts from all around the globe come to Albuquerque once a year for Balloon Fiesta. Hundreds of balloons will take flight, painting the once-blue sky with a rainbow of bold colors.

From balloonfiesta.com:

From its modest beginnings in 1972 with 13 balloons launching from a shopping mall parking lot, the Balloon Fiesta has grown to multiple events launching year-round at the custom-designed, 365-acre Balloon Fiesta Park. Our signature event remains Balloon Fiesta—which, with over 600 balloons, is the largest ballooning event on earth, the most photographed event on earth, and the largest annual international event held in the United States.

Traveling down from Taos or Santa Fe? Overland has stores in either of those picturesque cities — make sure to stop by on your way to the festival!

Overland is renowned for its fine selection of sheepskin coats, leather jackets, plush fur coats, and more. From sophisticated ski wear to western apparel, from sheepskin rugs and cowhides for the home to stylish UGG Australia footwear, Overland’s got it all.

Hours and directions for the Santa Fe and Taos stores can be found here. We can’t wait to see you!
