Red flag issued for Special Shape Glowdeo Thursday night
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Winds at Balloon Fiesta Park have forced organizers to cancel the Special Shape Glowdeo planned for Thursday evening.
A yellow flag was raised on the field after the pilot’s briefing around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. By 6:30 p.m. a red flag was issued.
Balloon Fiesta officials say the session will be a raincheck session – entry tickets can be used for another session this year.
Team Fastrax is still expected to jump at 7:15 p.m. Thursday, followed by a drone show at 7:30 p.m. and the fireworks show at 7:45 p.m.

Team Fastrax to jump at 7:15 p.m., Drone show to take place at 7:30 p.m. and Fireworks Show at 7:45 p.m.— Balloon Fiesta (@balloonfiesta) October 13, 2023
