Sunday, Oct. 11* It's Propane Day at the Balloon Fiesta, presented by Airgas Southwest, Inc.
* 5:45 to 6:45 a.m. Dawn Patrol Show presented by Rt. 66 Hotel Casino
* 7 to 8:30 a.m. Farewell Mass Ascension
2 p.m. The Fiesta may be officially over, but there's still plenty to enjoy around town. Catch La Cenerentola "Cinderella" at the KiMo Theatre (voted Best Theater Space). The show also runs at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3, and Friday, Oct. 9. This historic theater is one of Albuquerque's crown jewels, infused with Pueblo Deco architectural flourishes. Keep in mind that La Cenerentola is an opera, so it may not be great for the kiddos. ($20 to $65, some student, group and senior discounts available; 423 Central NW, 768-3522, cabq.gov/kimo)
5 p.m. Lastly, give yourself a treat before you make your final ascent out of Albuquerque. Betty's Bath and Day Spa (voted Best Spa) offers all the specialty treatments your wind-whipped body could ask for, plus two outdoor hot tubs, a xeriscaped garden dotted with lounge and relaxation areas, and a boutique. Unlimited communal soaks are only $11. Open Mondays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays from 3 to 9:30 p.m., Wednesdays through Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (1835 Candelaria NW, 341-3456, bettysbath.com)
