Put On Your Calendar - the 4th Annual Balloon Museum Fair!

Holidays season brings lots of book fairs and arts & crafts shows

Small Flyer Half Sheets-squashed

I will confess – it has been too warm for me to get in the holiday spirit. But the holidays are coming FAST!

The best Holiday Fair in New Mexico for the WHOLE Family is at the Balloon Museum, Sunday, November 12, 9-5pm. Let’s be honest, kids and husbands hate to shop at holiday fairs. They have the attention span of about five minutes. They can get over that at the Balloon Museum!

There is free admission and free parking so you can fill up the car with family, friends and neighbors. Those who want to can shop on two floors and those who poop out early can wander around the Balloon Museum and go into the Balloon Museum Store.

This is the fourth year of great New Mexican products featuring New Mexico books. Books are the best thing to give as gifts! They wrap easily and you can buy a book for any age. AND books keep delivering pleasure year after year.

There is also jewelry, art, clothing, soaps, and FOOD! Knock off every one on your gift list in one stop and have fun too!

If you and your family have never been to the Balloon Museum – off Alameda near I 25, go for a true adventure. Take cameras and just have a great time! It might be a good place to get a family picture for the card. There is fun for everyone and do a little shopping too!

Sunday, November 12, 9am -5pm and FREE!
