Rain cancels events on Day 5 of Balloon Fiesta

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Pilots will not get the chance to fly Wednesday as the red flag flew over Day 5 of Balloon Fiesta.

Officials reported a light, intermittent drizzle which prompted the yellow flag just before 6 a.m. The static display began at 6:45 a.m. after Dawn Patrol inflated and the pilot briefing concluded.

Still, the yellow flag remained as officials kept an eye on rain showers and the cloud ceilings but the red flag was soon displayed just before 8 a.m.
