While the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta draws balloonists from around the world every year, taking up this hobby isn't cheap.
In fact, some balloons are just as expensive as buying a house.
But those who dream of finding ballooning equipment at an affordable price can do so at the Balloon Fiesta Fly Swapper. The "yard sale" takes place on Monday, Oct. 7 and Friday, Oct. 11 on the launch field of Balloon Fiesta Park.
At the swap, balloon pilots will sell equipment they no longer need, giving potential buyers the best discounts and deals.
The event lasts from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
