The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is 52 days away, and there are many new reasons to check it out this year.
We're getting a look at some of the special shapes balloons that will make their fiesta debut in October, including some dedicated to firefighters, some new animal shapes and a new "Ice Cream Cone" balloon.
One of the most unique new shapes has to be one from the Reach For The Stars Hot Air Balloon Foundation, which includes a balloon with a custom basket that allows wheel-chair bound individuals to take a ride.
And keep your eyes peeled for the king. "Aaron" might be the only Elvis Presley impersonator at Balloon Fiesta this year.
The Balloon Fiesta starts October 6.
