Meet Famous Adventure Balloonist Buddy Bombard at Balloon Museum

The Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum will have an incredible number of events and activities during this year's Balloon Fiesta, and one special event is Buddy Bombard's Adventure Ballooning Tribute on Tuesday, October 4 from 6-8:30pm.

For those who may not recognize his name, Buddy Bombard is a legend in luxury multinational ballooning adventures across Europe. For 39 years, Bombard has operated Buddy Bombard's Europe, presenting passengers with many incredible European sights from the gondola of a hot air balloon.

From his earlier years, Bombard has been an adventure-seeker, becoming an avid skier, an Air Force jet pilot, a scuba instructor, America's Cup yachtsman, an insurance executive, a photographer, an honored balloon pilot and a tour and travel entrepreneur with a long history of providing the ultimate in adventure travel.

Please join us for this special Tribute to Buddy Bombard, the inspiration for the creation of a new major exhibition at the Balloon Museum. The event will feature a champagne toast and hors d'oeuvres created in the style of one of Bombard's grand adventures, the unveiling of a new display about his life and adventure travel, and a keynote address by this world renowned balloonist and entrepreneur.

Another interactive experience at the museum during Balloon Fiesta is "Find Joy and Fly", large letters that invite visitors to complete each word by making the "Y" at the end, and post their photo on social media using the hashtags #FindingJoy @BalloonMuseum and #YouFly @BalloonMuseum to see how far their photo will travel across the US and the globe. The experience is certain to be fun for all ages.
