New Mexico Balloon Festival

Today, October, 18, 2016, is the first day to reserve a site at the 2017 Balloon Festival. I went to reserve a Premium site but found all the weekend sites completely booked. How can this be? What experience have others had on getting a hooked up site?

Bob, you can't make reservations until yesterday.

Scheinin, I'm hoping it's a bug. I can't find anything available at all for a Standard site this morning.

When I go to https://online.rezexpert.com/book?business_code=303488 and move the calendar to Oct 2017, the only weekend I see open is the last one. During the week is still open for pretty much anything. Also, if you can dry camp, it's all open for 2017.

You might try calling the casinos in the area. Some have hookups. Most have (or had in the past) specials for RV camping and then shuttles to the event.

Here's one thread about where to stay away from the balloon park: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopi...ew_Mexico.html

Sigh, the calendar loaded this year. I never switched it to next year.

The registration website is definitely not intuitive and is hard to navigate!

The good news is - I made a 2 week reservation in a "standard" site.
