Plans for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta are moving forward.
Approximately 600 balloons are expected to participate in the fiesta, which was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
"When we had to postpone last year's event, almost every pilot said 'but I want to be back next year. Can I be on the list for next year.' We're seeing a lot of those same pilots come back," said Amanda Molina who works in media relations for the Balloon Fiesta.
Molina said workers are trying to figure out how a Balloon Fiesta will look in a world with COVID-19.
Tickets go on sale July 2.
