ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The green flag went up at Balloon Fiesta Park Wednesday morning after a brief weather delay.

Even if getting them off the ground seemed doubtful at first, the Albuquerque sky was filled with countless balloons.

The Flight of the Nations Mass Ascension was the first Balloon Fiesta event to be delayed this year due to the weather.
